Members of the Class of 2014 who fell short of completing graduation requirements last spring accepted their diplomas at a traditional graduation ceremony held October 28.

About 25 young people from seven SCUSD high schools graduated with peers and before their cheering families at the district’s annual Fall Graduation, an event that pays tribute to teens who worked over the summer to earn their high school diplomas.

The ceremony included a customary procession to “Pomp and Circumstance,” John F. Kennedy High School ROTC color guard, speakers and traditional caps and gowns.

SCUSD is one of few districts in the area to honor post-June graduates with their own ceremony,

Former SCUSD Board of Education trustee Rick Jennings, a City Council member-elect, gave the commencement address.
