Locke High Graduation
Associate Producer: Alexandria Gales; Editor: Alberto Arce
Even though Locke High is now a charter school with higher academic standards, students are still as likely to drop out as graduate. The odds were against the three students we followed on Inside Locke High and Return to Locke High - Joanna Alatorre, Damon Horton and Bryan Ordaz - did they make it?
Here are some pictures and thoughts on the day.
Joanna Alatorre: "The first thing I was thinking about this morning was success. The word 'success'."
Damon Horton: "Even though my Mom is gone, it felt like she was in the stands cheering for me like everyone else was."
Bryan Ordaz: "What a lot of people don't know about this community is that we have a lot of heart."
