Class of 2015 FilGrad

Sweetwater High School participated in the San Diego FilGrad Ceremony this past weekend! 

HS FilGrad is an event proudly organized by the members of KAMP to recognize the achievements of all San Diego high school Filipino/a graduating seniors. “HS FilGrad was such an amazing experience for me because I actually felt appreciated for my accomplishments in high school from others,” shared Mariel Velicaria after participating last year. “Thank you KAMP and HS FilGrad for this wonderful experience.”


There were 44 grads from all over San Diego County, SUHI had 25 grads! Thanks to our Filipino Language teacher Ms. Villanueva's help, SUHi definitely represented!

There ceremony was held at the downtown public library on the 9th floor with a panoramic view of the ballpark, Embarcadero, and downtown skyline. It was a beautiful venue!

Todd Gloria, SD Councilman,  was the keynote speaker. If you didn't know, Todd Gloria's paternal grandfather was a Filipino navy man who married a Tlingit woman when he lived in Alaska. He had a great speech about following one's passions and a call for public service.
