LISD Graduations Are Underway

LAREDO, Texas (KGNS) - After four long years of hard work, close to 1,000 LISD high school students are now high school graduates.

The Cigarroa High School Class of 2017.

Since the early hours of the day, family and friends have filled up the LEA, as they watched the students walk the stage to accept their high school diplomas.

As part of the graduation celebrations, one lucky student went home with a brand new car.

This year Jose Martinez from Nixon High School received the keys to a brand new 2017 Ford Fiesta for his perfect attendance.

Below is the original text from this story:

It’s been a busy day at the LEA as dozens of high school seniors from LISD walked on stage to receive their diploma.

Graduation day is not only an emotional day for students, but also for parents and other family members as well.

More than 500 seniors from Martin High School and Cigarroa have walked so far.

Parents have been eagerly waiting for the special moment to see their son or daughter walk the stage.

It’s a bittersweet moment for the students, as they end one chapter and get ready to begin another.

The 2017 Nixon High School graduating class is one of the largest high school classes that the school has seen in recent years.

Nixon is the last high school for the day and on Friday Early College High School will walk the stage.

Anyone who could not make it to the graduation ceremony can see it on the LISD Youtube account for free.

Four years of hard work is paying off for the hundreds of Laredo Independent School District students graduating from high school this Thursday.

Ever since the early hours of the day, family and friends have been packing the Laredo Energy Arena to watch students walk the stage to accept their high school diplomas.

KGNS was there on Thursday morning to witness the roller coaster of emotions from both parents and the graduates during this special moment.

Cigarroa High School Valedictorian Regina Rodriguez shared what her plans are after graduation: "I am going to go to TAMIU next fall and I'm going to major in education. I plan to work as [an] elementary school teacher."

Graduation for LISD schools continues for the Early College High School at the Texas A&M International University on Friday.
