The Clark Athletic Center at University of Massachusetts Boston was full of cheering students and their families on August 27, 2015 as the Boston Public Schools held its annual summer graduation exercises. Two hundred twenty-one students representing 26 high schools earned their diplomas after attending summer school and making up missing credits.
Students from the Winthrop school in Dorchester have earned the opportunity to travel to Mexico to represent the U.S. in an international competition. The students will travel to Monterrey, Mexico, in late September to present their project as part of the Design for Change competition, which presents students with the challenge to create positive change in the community. The students at the Winthrop were selected for their outstanding recycling project that brought together the entire school community.
The Haynes Early Education Center in Roxbury opened in 1998, and since then, the Hernandez/Orellana family has been a long supporter of the school. On June 26, the youngest son of the family, Jorge Jr. participated in the moving-on ceremony, which also honored their family. The former principal and former teachers of the boys were all in attendance.
