Graduation Ceremonies

June 11—Thursday evening, six hundred seventy-eight seniors turned their tassels, making them graduates of El Rancho HS. One hundred thirty-three of them did it wearing the honor crest stole (3.33 GPA or higher). The valedictorian of the class of 2015 was Melissa Gutierrez, followed by the salutatorian, Kimberly Serrano. Each made speeches to the packed stadium, as did ERHS's Principal Kwek, and ERUSD board president, Dr. Villon. The keynote address was delivered by Judge David Wesley, of ERHS's Teen Court. The deserving graduates were treated to a fireworks show which concluded the ceremony, and a 12-hour trip to Disneyland the following day. Gallery #1 | Gallery #2
