South San Antonio ISD student received his long-awaited diploma as he graduates high school.
Former Southwest High School student Jeremiah Oary received a special recognition at a district board meeting. He was supposed to graduate in 2008. However due to some outside challenges including the loss of his mother, he left without a diploma in hand. Jeremiah entered the workforce but never forgot about his dream to one day obtain his high school diploma. Jeremiah has shown perseverance and determination to reach his goal of graduating from Southwest High School.
Principal Amanda Wagner reviewed his credits and said he met all the requirements to receive his diploma! It was very a special and emotional moment as Dr. Verstuyft presented Jeremiah with his diploma. Jeremiah says he is now headed to college.
