Now is the time to say your goodbyes with tear filled eyes as your beloved Seniors leave for their next step in life. Jackson Prep Graduation was held on Thursday, May 25, 2017 at Thalia Mara Hall. Friends and family crowded this event to send off their loved ones for the “college life.”  

Many heartfelt speeches were made at this year’s graduation. These were given by Jackson Prep’s valedictorian, Wesley Robertson, and the salutatorian, Robert Wasson. Prep’s 2017 Distinguished alumni, Dr. Alice Chen-Plotkin, gave a heartwarming speech to the graduates to prepare them for their new young adult life.

As we say farewell to our seniors, we can also look back on the many memories that were shared throughout their time at Prep. From Junior High dances to turning in their caps and gowns, Prep seniors have had an eventful time at Jackson Prep.
