Forty-nine graduates of Alba-Golden High School concluded their public school education, which was 12 years in the making, as they collected their diplomas the night of May 31 at Wagstaff Gymnasium in Tyler.

The evening belonged to the happy graduates and their proud families, who lingered in the warm night air, long after the red mortar board caps were flung, for congratulatory hugs, high-fives and photographs.

High School Principal Michael Mize said he was “inspired and excited” about the future of the Alba-Golden Class of 2019 before certifying that every one of them had completed the necessary coursework to earn a diploma. more
Sixty-two Quitman graduates walked across the stage in Delbert Ballard Gym from high school into adulthood last Friday night. The night featured speeches and celebrations from faculty, family and friends.

Quitman High School Principal Dana Hamrick told the graduates that life is often like the rehearsal they went through the day before the ceremony. There will be bumps in the road, but “in the end, we stick with it.”

She advised them to know who you are, what your purpose is, know who and what is in front or behind you and always find your joy in life. “I’m proud of you,” Hamrick said. “I wish you all the best.”

As a class, the graduates have earned over $1.15 million in scholarships and financial aid awards. more
