More than 35,000 Utah students reached the pinnacle of the public education experience by graduating from high school this year. Congratulations to all of them and to those that supported them in their journey!
Graduation from high school is a significant accomplishment. It puts students on the path to continued successes. High school completion is a requirement for entering college and for many jobs. Studies show that high school graduates obtain higher earnings and are less likely to experience poverty and unemployment than those without a high school degree.
