"We were very happy to have both of our guests make this event exciting for the graduates and their families," WSD teacher Betty Lewing said. "The Polunsky Unit is especially thankful for Representative White and his constant support of graduation ceremonies. We always try to make commencement a special event because our students work so hard to get to this day."

The next graduation ceremony for the Polunsky Unit will be held Aug. 13, 2016. WSD schools throughout the state are also holding similar events.
