Oakland Unity High School 2008 Graduation
Posted Jun 27 2008
After working with these students for four years I couldn't be prouder. Because everyone loves numbers, 70% were accepted to four year universities! That's something people in Oakland should be talking about. The number could have actually been higher. Nonetheless, that's not the measurement of how far these young people have come and will will go. Plus, the reality is that 4 year colleges don't make sense for everyone right now. Whether they take time off to work, go to community college, go to a technical school, or off to a university, they will make changes in this world! Congratulations! BTW, we were fortunate to have Favianna Rodriguez of Tumis Designs and Dr. Jamal Cooks of San Francisco State as keynote speakers. Click here to see even more pics from this event. Sorry, I couldn't fit everyone on this page!
