Five students with KKIS scholarship that graduated from High School had the highest GPA!
259 students from CETMAR 36 finished High School and participated in their graduation ceremony on Friday the 5th of July at the Hilton hotel in Playa del Carmen.
Of those students, nine of them had the KKIS High School Scholarship: Viviana, Irma, Nayeli, Ángela, Daniela, Keila, Yara, Anthony and Erick.
Families, friends, teachers, plus Stuart Meheux volunteer at the English Conversation Club and Briar Loewen, Owner at GUSA, [and one of our wonderful sponsors] gathered in this special event to support the students.
The ceremony started with words from the Director of the school, Alberto Vázquez, followed by cheers and excitement of all the students.
After listening to the inspiring words of Alberto, students walked to the stage to receive their diplomas, and then, students with the highest GPA received a special award.
We were so proud to see KKIS scholarship students Viviana, Irma, Ángela, Daniela and Anthony receiving a special award for having the highest GPA in their class!
“I am very proud of the CETMAR students who took part in the graduation ceremony at the Hilton, especially the KKIS scholarship students who achieved the highest GPA awards. I Had the privilege to work with these students on many occasions at the KKIS English Conversation Club where I am a voluntary teacher. These students have worked very hard and I know they will do very well in their future studies”, Stuart, KKIS volunteer.
And surprises kept coming. Not only did 5 out of the 9 students with KKIS scholarships were awarded for their highest GPA, but 2 of them will go to University with a KKIS scholarship!
Irma and Nayeli will continue in KKIS Scholarship Program to go to University, so they were asked to join the stage with teachers, authorities and Briar Loewen, from GUSA, who will be sponsoring them for being committed to education.
“I was honored to be invited to the graduation ceremony of this year’s CETMAR graduates and especially proud to see Irma and Nayeli recognized for all of the hard work that they have put in throughout their two years of high school. It is inspiring to see two young women who have faced challenges go on to not only graduate with honors, but to continue on to further their education at university. Their determination is what has gotten them this far, and together with the support of KKIS there is no stopping them!”, Briar Loewen, from GUSA.
KKIS Scholarship students represent what KKIS is all about: staying in school and go all the way to the finish line!
Congratulations to you all!
