Students at Graduation

Mules Up for the Class of 2024!

 

With pomp and circumstance, Alamo Heights High School celebrated the graduation of the Class of 2024 on May 23 at Harry B. Orem Stadium. This year’s class of 384 graduates was honored for their outstanding academic and extracurricular achievements.

 

The Class of 2024 earned close to $8 million in college scholarships. Our newest graduates will next attend prestigious universities across the state and nation including Brown University, Purdue University, Yale, Rice University, Vanderbilt, the University of Texas at Austin, and Tulane University.

 

“In the coming days and weeks, you will embark on an exciting new chapter in your journey of life,” said Alamo Heights High School Principal Cory Smith. “In a world that often values conformity and the well-trodden path, it is the trailblazers who truly make a difference. Embrace the spirit of exploration and innovation. Don’t be afraid to deviate from the expected route. Instead, carve out your own path, one that is uniquely yours. The world is full of opportunities for those that dare to dream and have the courage to pursue those dreams.”

 

During the ceremony, Principal Smith announced the Outstanding Senior Girl and Boy, as voted on by the faculty and staff. Ana Salgado Soberanes was honored as Outstanding Senior Girl and Jacob Young was named Outstanding Senior Boy. Both were lauded as exemplifying character, integrity, and the characteristics of the district’s Profile of a Learner.

 

Emphasizing connection and community, Principal Smith recognized all Alamo Heights ISD teachers who played a role in the graduates’ education from Howard Early Childhood Center through high school.

 

Leading up to the graduation ceremony, seniors were able to take part in many traditions. They attended Senior Sendoffs at Cambridge and Woodridge elementary schools, reuniting with former teachers and walking down memory lane with pictures and yearbooks. The graduates also donned their caps and gowns for Senior Walks and paraded through both elementary schools among cheering teachers and students.

 

Seniors whose parents work in Alamo Heights ISD were honored at a reception highlighting the connections of AHISD families. Employees were also invited to award diplomas to their children on stage at the graduation ceremony.
