(Seguin) -- It's graduation weekend for the Seguin High School Senior Class of 2018. SHS Principal Hector Esquivel says he is especially excited to present this year's round of graduates.

"We are looking at potentially 478 graduates for the Class of 2018 -- pretty consistent. Last year, we were at 460 so just a little bit of an increase. It would probably be the most graduates that we've had since I've been here for three years as a principal. So we are very excited about that. Obviously, we put a lot of structures in place that have benefited the students to be able to build those numbers up," said Esquivel.

Esquivel says this particular group of students has proven success not only because of the hours and credits collected through the Early College Campus Designation but because of its well roundedness.

"This is a very special class. I've been with them for three years so I've basically been their principal through most of their high school except for their freshman year. It's a very special class for me because I know a lot about them but they are also an amazing group of kids and they've really hung to (the fact) that since last year – (they were) going to be the first class to graduate from (the new) Seguin High School. Of course, that added to the excitement for this year's graduation," said Esquivel.

Esquivel says he thanks the community for allowing him the opportunity and honor of presenting the class for graduation this weekend.

"On a personal level, I want to thank the parents and families of these graduates for entrusting me as a principal to have their kids here for three years and guide them with hopefully the right decisions that they made post secondary. On a school level, we are all very proud of them, very enthusiastic kids -- who a lot of them have a really bright future. I couldn't have asked for a better class than the Class of 2018 and they know that,” said Esquivel.

The Seguin High School graduation ceremony gets underway at 8 p.m. Saturday at Matador Stadium. Thanks to the construction of the new Seguin High School Campus, Esquivel says there will be more available parking spots for guests throughout the campus. Those unable to attend are invited to catch a live streaming of the event. Link information will be made available Friday on the district's website.
