Las Cruces Class of 2020 Grads Included in Summer Commencement

  Las Cruces Public Schools is making good on a promise made by late superintendent Dr. Karen Trujillo: graduates from the Class of 2020 will have their moment on the stage.  

All seniors from last year’s graduating class will be included in the district’s annual summer commencement ceremony, scheduled for 9 a.m. on Thursday, July 1 at the Field of Dreams.  

Last year, public health orders banning large gatherings forced the district to get creative and host drive-through graduation celebrations. At the time, Trujillo assured seniors that they would get their ceremony when it was safe to do so.  

“The Class of 2020 is not forgotten,” said Superintendent Ralph Ramos. “We are thrilled to include them in the summer commencement to honor them and the promise made by our beloved Dr. Trujillo, who fought to give our seniors the celebration they deserved.”  

Anyone who wishes to participate is asked to register by June 18. A sign-up survey is available online at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/FZ5SLB2
