supporters saw 320 students become graduates of the class of 2012 during the school’s May 25 commencement ceremony.
Michelyn Russell, senior counselor at the school, spoke during the ceremony and told those in attendance that 66 members of the class were graduating with honors. Of the 320, 162 students graduated with Career, Technical, and Agricultural Education seals, 80 with fine arts seals, and 75 with a world language diploma seal. Fifty-three students in the class earned two seals, while three students earned three different diploma seals.
Conner M. Henderson was the school’s valedictorian. Ashleigh Dianne Cash was the school’s winner of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution Cup.
The school’s graduation ceremony was an historic one for HHS Principal Jason Freeman, as the class of 2012 started their high school careers when he began as the school’s principal.
