RRHS-Class of 2019

Rio Rico High School Class of 2019 held their graduation ceremony, on Thursday, May 23rd, from 5:00-9:30 p.m. The Rio Rico Marching Hawks Band played from the lower field, while the soon to be graduates came down the stairways in their customized graduation attire. From every angle of the field stadium, friends, school faculty, and family members were able to see the graduates walking down the stairs in their red & black caps and gowns.
At that moment, pensive tears and warm hugs were inevitable. Tears and hugs reflecting the graduates’ struggles and hard work paying off. Although accomplishment filled the air that night, different perspectives were shared by students. “I honestly felt a lot of emotions at the same time… But change is always good. And I feel like that change was for the better. I’m ready to take on new challenges,” says Nicole Hernandez with a positive and hopeful outlook for the future.
A 4-year theater arts student with 220 hours of theater experience, with over 11 theater productions, Ivan Solis said “a weight was lifted off my shoulders and have gained some freedom.”  A 3- year honor roll student Katja Vaatz felt “Infinite- like in Perks Of Being A Wallflower. Not scared because I had an idea of what would come. But also kind of like a mother who had to let her chicks fly away, leaving my school and my underclassmen friends”. Interchangeable with the shining stars with their diplomas on hand, the ceremony ended with fireworks. It is difficult to explain fully what was pervaded that night in the souls of everyone present. However, it was certainly the way to end this chapter and begin the rest of the graduates’ lives.

Lots of mixed emotions were mutual among students, graduates and family members. Although it was the end of high school, many didn’t see this as the end. They saw it as the key to unlock the future.  After valedictorian Esteban Ureña gave a propitious speech commemorating his grandfather who passed away this school year, he filled the listener’s hearts and minds with hope for the future, resilience through tough times, and melancholy of the everlasting high school memories. As he very well stated “The only limitations you have are the ones you set yourself”.
