On Friday, June 11, Metro School’s Comité de Padres Latinos (COPLA) hosted ¡Lo Logramos! (We Made It!), its 3rd Annual Hispanic High School Student Graduation Celebration and Parents’ Recognition Day of the Class of 2010.

The ceremony, held at the Boone Business Building of Trevecca Nazarene University, recognized approximately 400 MNPS Hispanic graduates, including Brenna Gonzalez and Mario Cardiel, salutatorian and valedictorian, respectively, from McGavock High School (pictured above).

The Tennessean published photos of the valedictorians and salutatorians of various high schools in Davidson County and Williamson County, and among them I noted Claudia Calvillo, valedictorian of Stratford High School. In 2008, Claudia was also named a "Princess" representing Guatemalan heritage in an event at a local church, the "Fiesta Cultural 'Clamor'".
