Students graduate during summer program

Brandon Tyler, a North Point High School student, received his high school diploma in a Commencement Exercise held July 30 at Westlake High School. Tyler is one of 13 Charles County Public Schools students who received their diploma through the summer school program this year.

Thirteen Charles County Public Schools seniors finished their high school coursework requirements and graduated from Charles County Public Schools (CCPS) July 30 during Summer Commencement Exercises at Westlake High School.

Representing five high schools, the 13 graduates at the summer school graduation ceremony wore caps and gowns in their respective schools’ colors.

Superintendent Kimberly Hill was guest speaker at the graduation and said the 13 graduates traveled a unique road filled with challenges, but never gave up their goal to graduate. “Graduates, all of you have a story to tell about what brought you here. A story about your journey, the journey that led you to finish your high school credits at summer school. It took a lot of courage for you not to give up… Congratulations, we’re very proud of you,” Hill said.

Summer school graduates are Matthew Phipps of La Plata High School; Diondre Mercer, D’Mon Warren and Samantha Smoot of Henry E. Lackey High School; Bryce Boyd of Maurice J. McDonough High School; Tyreik Byrd, Ravell Thomas and Brandon Tyler of North Point High School; and Dominique Barber, Brittany Glover, Marquis Green, Justice Smoot and Trevon Wells of Thomas Stone High School.

Middle and high school students may enroll in the summer school program. Summer school is a month-long session that allows middle school students to focus on remediation and enrichment, and high school students to make up classes. Students who complete their high school graduation requirements during summer school receive their diplomas at Summer Commencement Exercises.
