Balloons, flowers, and a cheerful atmosphere filled the NHS field with a good vibe. One by one student’s names were being called to step to the stage by school district staff to shake hands and accept their diplomas. As hundreds of high school seniors, with white and burgundy gowns, tassels and “Pomp and Circumstance,” graduated from Nogales High School on Friday, May 25th at 6:00 p.m. The graduates have now stepped into the inherent challenges they will face leaving the comfy confines of public school life and into adulthood.
NHS graduates will enter a world full of modern opportunities and modern challenges. Many of the graduates will enter military service, the job market, or will attend college or the university. College and university participation rates are at a record high, and the job market has plenty of open opportunities for NHS graduates waiting for them. Congratulations to the Nogales High School Class of 2018.
