Story+Gallery: El Paso High celebrates picturesque graduation on Memorial Day

Three hundred and fifty Tigers received their high-school diplomas Monday evening in a ceremony overlooking the historic steps of the majestic campus of El Paso High School.

“We have a beautiful campus that is the centerpiece of the amazing learning that has gotten these students to this point in their educational careers,” Principal Mark Paz said.

“It’s only fitting that we send them off to the rest of their lives with this view as a background.”

Monday’s ceremony, which happened on Memorial Day, included the recognition of the men and women of the military who have given their lives in the defense of our country.

The El Paso High Class of 2019 raked in $16.5 million in scholarships and funding for post-secondary education.

According to EPHS officials, this year’s class valedictorian is Harper Spier and salutatorian is David Mullings.

It is tradition that the commencement exercises for La High take place on the field of Jones Stadium, instead of the Don Haskins Center where all other EPISD graduations happen.
