EAST CLASS OF 2023 CELEBRATES SCHOOL’S 64TH COMMENCEMENT
Surrounded by the Cannon, the Lamp of Knowledge, and state title designations in Unified Bowling and Wrestling – and representing the final graduating class from the current East building – the Eagles of 2023, more than 200 in number, ventured forth into the future after receiving diplomas Friday afternoon at the Southwest Motors Events Center.
DISTRICT’S TOP SCHOLARS, EAST HIGH SCHOOL, LAUDED FOR ACADEMIC ACCOMPLISHMENTS
A 15-year District 60 tradition, the Academic Excellence Awards ceremony was created to recognize graduating seniors who have distinguished themselves through rigor of courses and a grade point average of at least 3.4. The honored scholars embody the values of Academic Achievement, Leadership, Character, and Service: the pillars of the coveted Lamp of Knowledge, which serves as a centerpiece of the ceremony.
PREPARING FOR ACADEMIC EXCELLENCE
The highest-achieving scholars from our high schools are spending the morning preparing for this evening's Academic Excellence Ceremony, which will salute those who will graduate with top honors. Additionally, the traditional Lamp of Knowledge will be awarded to that school that has earned it. The ceremony begins at 6 p.m. tonight, Wednesday, at the Southwest Motors Events Center.
SALUTE TO SCHOLARSHIP RECIPIENTS ALANA DURAN, EAST
Alana received a Wake Forest University attendance scholarship, valued at $67,250 per year, and a Wakeware technology grant. “The teachers that made the biggest impact in my life are Mrs. Maes and Ms. Goehringer,” Alana said. “Mrs. Maes has always encouraged us to learn more and to ask questions. She would make our four-person class fun and welcoming, and I loved to talk with her. "In middle school, Ms. Goehringer taught me to dream big and was a large influence in my perseverance, commitment, growth, and large goals. She motivated me to push myself and try new things, which became a huge piece of my personality.”
