Many family and friends attended the ceremony where the community room was packed to capacity. The program started off with the Darrel Hester Juvenile Justice Center Cadets posting the colors and Tommy Ramirez, Cameron County Juvenile Justice Center CEO, welcoming everyone. This was followed by Pastor David Sanchez who delivered the invocation.
The commencement address was delivered by Dr. Juan Villarreal, CEO of Harlingen Family Dentistry, and Harlingen Commissioner Joey Trevino presented the graduates their diplomas. Dr. Juan Villarreal awarded Sofie Rodriguez with a scholarship to attend the Harlingen Family Dentistry Dental Assistant Training School.
