Graduation Spotlight

  • Students in the Class of 2015 have spent four years of high school learning, growing and finding success inside and outside the classroom.

    With the guidance and support of teachers, counselors, coaches and other school personnel, the students balanced challenging academic courses with volunteer work and athletic schedules. They became school leaders and made an impact on the community, founded their own clubs and nonprofit organizations, and earned state and national awards.

    Their four years of high school in Gaston County Schools have prepared them for success in college and beyond.

    Some of our graduates have earned full-tuition scholarships to prestigious universities including Yale, Duke and Syracuse. They are planning ahead for careers in fields such as engineering, education, journalism, architecture and business, and some are already planning to return to Gaston County after graduating from college to contribute to their community.

    Below are links to a series of short profiles that shine the spotlight on some of our outstanding graduates in the Class of 2015.
