Valedictorians, salutatorians surprised with home visits

Valedictorians and salutatorians from all seven Garland ISD high schools recently learned about their top status via surprise visits from district and campus leadership. The Board of Trustees, Superintendent Ricardo López and high school principals caravanned across GISD to celebrate these honored seniors at their homes. They also brought gifts and a congratulatory yard sign to commemorate the impressive accomplishments.

GRS-TV captured the surprises and compiled a video on the district’s YouTube channel. You can also relive the celebrations via our photo gallery.
