SHS prepares for high school graduation on Saturday
Posted on 6/2/2017 7:49:00 AM.

(Seguin) -- It's graduation weekend for Seguin High School. The SHS commencement ceremony will be held Saturday night, June 3, at Matador Stadium.
 
Seguin High School Principal Hector Esquivel says this year, he has the distinct honor to present 464 graduates.
 
"We're excited for them. They've done everything they needed to do to prepare themselves for this moment. So we're excited about that," said Esquivel.
 
Esquivel says the number of 2017 graduates is an increase from last year's total of 455. He says the increase demonstrates this particular group's dedication to the classroom.
 
"Personally for me, I've just been honored to serve as their principal for the last two years. It's been a very special class, very dedicated class, very academically focused. We have a lot of students going to great universities with the education they got here at Seguin High School. My comment to them, I've always told them is that we love them and if they do what they really love, then they'll never have to work a day in their life. I know that's old, but I think some of them are catching on and they're following their dreams based on the conversations I've had with them. I'm really excited for them, but in a lot of ways, I'm sad to see them go because they were such a great class," said Esquivel.
 
Despite preparing for Saturday, SHS seniors have remained busy these last couple of days.
 
The class took its traditional panoramic class photo in cap and gown Thursday at Matador Stadium. They then boarded school buses for the annual Graduation Walk. Seguin High School seniors visited their former elementary schools in the Seguin ISD. The students, wearing their graduation gowns, walked the hallways -- high fiving students in hopes of inspiring the youth to also follow their dreams.
 
With the uncertainty of the weather these days, Esquivel says the district has chosen to take an even more proactive approach to its weather plan.
 
School officials say should the forecast call for inclement weather Saturday afternoon, school officials say the ceremony would be moved up to 10 a.m., Saturday, June 3, in Matador Stadium. If rain is expected all day, the ceremony will be moved to Goldie Harris Gym at 8 p.m.

Esquivel says the inclement weather plan, if any, will be announced no later than 6 p.m. Friday, June 2 for Saturday's ceremony. Announcements will also be delivered on Seguin Radio KWED, www.seguintoday.com, and on the KWED/Seguin Daily News Facebook page.
