In its annual Graduation and Awards Banquet held at the Angeles National Golf Course, Hillside School granted diplomas to seven seniors. The dinner banquet was attended by more than 120 family members, friends, staff and guests.
Executive Director Bob Frank stated what an incredible group of young men and women the Hillside School was privileged to work with and thanked parents for their trust and the opportunity to work with their children. In addition to maintaining their grades and passing all graduation requirements for the state of California, six of the students worked part-time and all accomplished nearly 80 hours of community service through various nonprofit groups in the community during their high school experience.
