Grossmont Middle College High School students graduate

Grossmont Middle College High School graduation
Grossmont Middle College High School, which is held on the Grossmont College campus, recently held graduation ceremonies for its 10th graduating class.

The high school is a collaborative effort between the Grossmont Union High School District and the college district. Middle college students concurrently take classes for both high school credit and college credits. By the time they graduate from high school, most Middle College students have earned approximately 30 units of college credit.

This year's graduating class of 40 students earned approximately $410,000 in scholarships and grants, and had more than 1,000 hours of college under their belts. Serving as valedictorian for the senior class of 2012 was Gabrielle Alexandria Gomez, with a 4.571 grade point average. The salutatorian was Amanda Baron with a 4.5 GPA.

At the ceremony, Cathy Zemlick, Middle College founder and lead instructor, was honored because she is retiring this month.
