CCSA returned to the Lang Performing Arts Center at Swarthmore College for its 2022 graduation ceremony. The 47 graduating seniors, surrounded by their friends and families, walked the stage to thunderous applause as they received their high school diplomas.
Maiah Madison, salutatorian, made opening remarks that expressed the students’ collective optimism for the future and gratitude for CCSA. Her address was followed by moving speeches given by DaNae Elliot, valedictorian; Jordynn Logan, Student Council president; and Monet Lee, National Honor Society president. The graduates also had an opportunity to recognize someone in the audience who has supported their journey by presenting them with a rose.
Of the graduates, 39 will be pursuing post-secondary education, and eight will be entering the workforce. This class of seniors persevered through exceptional circumstances and are well prepared for life beyond CCSA.
