DPS Corner: Looking back on successful year

On May 22, 204 seniors at our smaller specialty high schools — Clement Early College, City of Medicine Academy and Middle College — crossed the stage, shook our hands and took their first steps as high school graduates. By the end of the day on June 12, the total of Durham Public Schools graduates will swell to nearly 2,100 – 2,100 young adults ready for whatever comes next, a career, college, maybe the military. They will be ready to make their mark on the world.
And did we mention they bring with them some $29 million in scholarships?

They were excited to meet new classmates, teachers and challenges, and their energy was catching. As I visited these schools on the first day, I felt just as excited. It was a new beginning for all of us.
