CLASS OF 2020
In 2018, BYLP established an advocacy arm to help families address a myriad of issues that resulted in unfair suspensions, expulsions and arrests of Black students across school campuses. Many of these students were prevented from participating in their high school commencement ceremonies. A Black Graduation Celebration validates the Black student's accomplishments, presents them before the community to be acknowledged for their perseverance and allows the community to come together in a display of love, unity and support. Our graduation ceremony may be the only graduation that some of our students will participate in or be recognized for this important milestone. All are welcome.
If you are planning to participate in the Graduation Celebration, please bring your cap, gown, sash(es), cord(s), etc, to wear .
NOTE: EACH STUDENT NEEDS TO SUBMIT A GRADUATION PHOTO OF THEMSELVES
Along with recognition of black high school graduates, the celebration will also include:
Graduation Cap Decoration Contest
Special Recognition Awards
