Their tassels have been turned and their futures are bright!
“When we leave here today, we will begin a new journey and the next chapter of our lives,” said Jacob Rose, ACE graduate.
More than 50 Academy of Creative Education (ACE) students walked the stage and received their diplomas at the 2022 Winter Graduation ceremony today. Family, friends, former and current teachers, and administrators packed the room to celebrate this incredible accomplishment.
North East ISD created ACE to give students at risk of dropping out a non-traditional way to learn and graduate. It’s now a nationally recognized program celebrating more than 30 years of life-changing opportunities for students.
ACE graduate Jacob Rose gave the opening and closing remarks at the ceremony. During his speech, he shared the impact that ACE teachers and staff have made on all of their lives.
“Our experience at ACE taught us to seek help and face obstacles, which helped us succeed and graduate. You believed in us and made it possible for us to graduate. Thank you for being here and sharing this extremely important day with us.”
