Some people are not aware that adults can earn a high school diploma in Vallejo. They can, and the proof was at an inspiring June graduation ceremony for the Vallejo Regional Education Center.
The Center offers various programs for adults including high school credit classes and high school Equivalency preparation. VREC is a fully accredited school for adults 18 years of age and above.
On June 25, 45 students earned high school diplomas and seven students earned an HSE, High School Equivalency.
After the traditional “Pomp and Circumstance” procession and the Pledge of Allegiance, Principal Laura Dutch welcomed representatives of the Vallejo City Unified School District: Dr. Adam Clark, Superintendent, Cheri Summers, Chief Academic Officer, Burky Worel, President of the VCUSD Board and Board Trustee Robert Lawson.
