Turning the page to write the newest chapter

Roseville, Calif.- Once those tassels slide across student caps from right to left, then tossed into the air in celebration, we know the school year is officially over. And for many throughout our District, their time at RJUHSD has come to an end.

It feels bittersweet to say goodbye to the hundreds of graduates and the dozens of retirees, but I can’t deny the excitement of watching each of them turn the page to begin writing their newest chapter. And these chapters are as unique and wondrous as the graduates writing them! Our graduates are scattering across the country in pursuit of their dreams and passions, many of which were honed in the halls of our schools, on the pitches of our fields and at the desks in the classrooms in which we ignite, inspire and prepare our students.

Liz Lamora

For example, Liz Lamora, a Woodcreek High School graduate, has set her sights on becoming a Broadway performer. Throughout high school, Liz dedicated herself to honing her skills as an actress, vocalist, and dancer, seeking guidance from renowned teachers and participating in community theater. Her hard work and unwavering dedication have paid off, as Liz has been accepted into the esteemed BFA Musical Theatre Program at The University of Oklahoma, known for producing top musical theater talents. We eagerly anticipate seeing Liz shine on stage, as she turns her dreams into reality!

Joseth Martinez

Joseth Martinez, a resilient bilingual Oakmont High School graduate, has triumphed over numerous challenges throughout his academic journey. Despite the loss of his father in 2019 and the disruptions caused by the pandemic, Joseth had shown exceptional determination and resilience. Despite these obstacles, he earned a GPA exceeding 3.0 while taking on greater responsibilities to support his family. We applaud his decision to join the U.S. Marine Corps after graduation.
