On Wednesday, June 2, the Class of 2021, along with faculty, staff, parents, and a select number of guests gathered at Holy Trinity Church to celebrate their achievements with the Robing Ceremony. The Robing Ceremony is a symbolic event, which recognizes the accomplishments of the senior class, highlighting excellence in their academic, athletic, and extracurricular activities. Graduating senior Alejandra Sotelo addressed her class with moving speech, reminiscing on four years and looking ahead to what the future holds. Seniors were invited to select a faculty or staff member to robe them in their graduation regalia. This tradition gives students the opportunity to thank their teachers, mentors, coaches and signals that the class is ready for graduation.
