The school year has finally come to an end which means one thing for the seniors of our local high schools. Graduation day.

Robstown, Calallen and Tuloso-Midway held their graduation ceremonies May 29 at their respective campuses.

With graduation comes a time to celebrate and reflect for our students. With thoughts of the future and reflections of the past a journey in their career as students is now complete.

Calallen High School graduated 235 seniors for the year of 2015. Valedictorian was Justine Borchard and Salutatorian was Victoria Wahlen.

Through Kristinas hard work in the classroom and involvement with school clubs such as Theater, Business Professionals of America, and the school newspaper Kristina has also earned scholarships at Stanford University. After Graduation Kristina plans to attend Stanford University where she will major in Biology with a concentration in immunology.

Hannah was awarded the Caller Times distinguished scholar scholarship along with other scholarships from Texas A&M Univeristy College Station because of her outstanding performance as a student. While at College Station she plans on pursuing a degree in civil engineering.

In Robstown the high school celebrated graduation with a class of 107 senior students. Their Valedictorian was Savino Rojas and Salutatorian was Derek Flores.

Savino was a bit surprise when the final word was in that he was Valedictorian as that bumped him up from the number 2 spot. Savino plans to attend the University of Texas Austin where he will study Mechanical Engineering.

Derek who is a member of the National Honor Society plans to attend Texas A&M Kingsville where he will study Chemical Engineering. With Knack for Chemistry Derek says, “Since I enjoy Chemistry why not go into Chemical Engineering.”

With a big congratulations to all of our area seniors we conclude another school year and await the next generation to come forward. With one stage of education over, our area graduates can now take the next step in life.
