The Clark Advanced Learning Center Class of 2020, along with their families and friends, celebrated commencement on Saturday, July 25, at the Jensen Beach High School football stadium. Participating members of the 91-student high school graduating class observed safety precautions, including wearing face masks and sitting six feet apart during the ceremony.

“Our seniors have certainly risen to the challenge," shares Debbie Kohuth, Clark Advanced Learning Center Principal. "This year, 73% of our graduates have earned Associate degrees from Indian River State College—a record number for any Clark graduating class. We are so proud of this amazing and resilient group of students, and they serve as an inspiration to all future Clark graduates.”

Students at Clark Advanced Learning Center gain a head start on college, expertise in the latest technology, and real-world experience gained through internships within the local community. In the past school year, graduates have logged nearly 4,600 hours with 78 local business partners. Clark seniors also engaged in diverse service-learning and community projects, accumulating over 12,000 hours of service throughout their high school years.

Collectively Clark seniors have been offered a total of more than $1.5 million in scholarships. More than $242,000 was awarded in local community scholarships; over $365,000 in Bright Futures Scholarships; and more than $900,000 in scholarship opportunities from various institutional, state and national organizations. Additionally, many seniors received local, state, and national honors and recognition.
