District 49 administrators, educators, Board of Education directors and community members gathered to celebrate the graduation of more than 70 students and GED recipients from Patriot Learning Center. The commencement ceremony took place at the school.
“You have to be clear and understand what you want to do after high school,” said retired Air Force Brig. Gen. Ruben A. Cubero, guest speaker. “The clearer you are, in terms of what goal you have set for yourself, the better you’re going to be in life.”
“We’re here for this hour,” said Peter Hilts, chief education officer, explaining what motivates educators. “This is the thing that keeps us going throughout the year.” He went on to thank the friends and family members in the attendance. “We don’t take it for granted that you brought us your best, and we hope that we have honored that trust.”
Congratulations to the Patriot Learning Center class of 2016...
