200 students earn diplomas in summer graduation ceremony

The graduating class of 2009 grew last week, when 200 more students earned diplomas at a special summer commencement ceremony at White Stadium. The students, from 24 Boston public high schools, completed their high school requirements through credit recovery and other programs during the summer months. Surrounded by their families, friends, teachers, Headmasters and other City and school officials, the graduates proudly accepted diplomas in cap and gown.

Menino, and Boston School Committee member Alfreda Harris.
