Graduation for Class of 2015
I wanted to share the good news with all of you. After a great deal of thought and discussion over the last two years, as well as the consideration of the challenges we face at graduation, Mark Keppel will be holding their graduation at East LA City College this year. Keppel will be graduating at 9:00 am on Saturday, May 30th. There are many positive factors in using ELAC as a graduation site; there will be ample seating/tickets for the parents, families and students in other grades, there is plenty of parking, graduation and Grad Night are the same day.
We are looking forward to ELAC being a successful location for our graduation.
