2021 Virtual
Graduation Celebration

In 2021, CollegeTracks celebrated our largest ever cohort of graduating high school seniors and college students, despite the intense challenges our students and community faced. Between April 27 and May 4, we hosted seven virtual graduation celebrations to honor our students' achievements and to salute the community and partners who supported their successes. We are incredibly proud of our nearly 800 graduating high school seniors and almost 100 graduating college students as they move on to the next steps in their journeys.

The celebrations culminated on May 4 during our 2021 Annual Graduation Celebration, during which Eric H. Holder, Jr., 82nd Attorney General of the United States, delivered an incredibly inspiring keynote address. The celebration also featured Class of 2021 student speakers, messages from families and community leaders, and more.
