2016 Midterm Graduates Ready for Next Level

Midterm graduationWhen it comes to graduation ceremonies, there's really only one thing that matters. Pomp and circumstance. And plenty of it. 

This was the case recently at the APS Professional Learning and Conference Center, where family members and school and district staff gathered to celebrate more than 50 students during the 2016 midterm graduation. After a powerful keynote address from Adeyemi Stembridge, Ph.D, the former director of the Center for Strategic Solutions, students from Aurora West College Preparatory Academy, Rebound Ombudsman and Aurora Central, Gateway and Hinkley high schools proudly walked across the stage to accept their diplomas.

Stembridge, pacing throughout the crowd, urged the young adults to use this moment as a stepping stone to the next great accomplishment as the words "Create something MAGNIFICENT" illuminated from the large conference room screens.

Congratulations graduates for earning an important credential on the path to shaping your successful future
