The seven high schools that comprise the Tempe Union High School District hosted graduation ceremonies on Wednesday, May 17 and Thursday, May 18 for approximately 3,100 students.

While many schools have moved ceremonies to various stadiums and other facilities, TUHSD ceremonies took place on each of the schools’ football field, a time-honored tradition enjoyed by families, friends and loved ones of the graduates.

This year’s graduating class of seniors is one of distinction, with many honors and accomplishments, including a Flinn Foundation Scholarship, several National Merit Scholarships, many Tempe Diablo Excellence in Education Scholarships and many others. In total, the graduating class of TUHSD 2017 was offered more than $77 million in post-secondary scholarship money.
