Each school year Jefferson High School hosts an event called Commitment to Graduate. The event is a mock graduation ceremony to build excitement among the freshman class.
This year's ceremony was on Feb. 1. All Jefferson freshmen were welcomed with a commitment banner on display that they signed in English class. The students who gathered in the auditorium heard an inspirational speech from State Representative Maurice West. For the fourth year in a row West, a fellow J-Hawk and 2003 graduate, affirmed the importance of graduation. West has also spoken at Jefferson graduation ceremonies in the past.
Jefferson class officers led the class of 2022 in a pledge to give their best effort at school. The students then crossed the stage and received a certificate that looks like a diploma.
