On Friday, the first of the Class of 2010 will walk down the aisle and receive their high school diplomas as San Diego Unified's Class of 2010. Between Friday and the following Monday, more than 8,000 students are expected to complete their education in our schools.

Many are going to some of the top universities in the nation, including Harvard and Princeton in the Ivy League; Stanford, UC Berkeley and UCLA here on the west coast. Others will go to our fine local universities, UC San Diego, San Diego State, the University of San Diego and Cal State San Marcos, to name a few. Many will continue their education at our excellent community colleges, such as City, Mesa, Grossmont and Southwestern. Still other students will go right into a very tough job market. Many will have a leg up, having completed the district’s career and technical education programs.

Congratulations to our 2010 graduates on their many accomplishments. A special salute goes to the teachers, principals, support staff and all others who have worked tirelessly to help our fine young people become high school graduates.
