Dos Pueblos High School Graduates Take Charge at 2018 Commencement

Huge crowd gathers to celebrate the Class of 2018's 539 graduating seniors


Dos Pueblos High School seniors celebrated graduation Thursday afternoon at the Goleta campus’s Scott O’Leary Stadium among friends and family.

Principal Bill Woodard made opening remarks and student speakers included senior class president Keegan Noronha, ASB president Peri Hernandez, and seniors Emily Kuhn and Adrian Lopez.

“We should feel proud for achieving this milestone,” Noronha told his fellow graduates.   

“Thank you for sharing your students with us the last four years,” Woodard welcomed the huge crowd of Chargers. 

He listed accomplishments of the graduating class, including five CIF championship finalists, the mock trial team winning the Santa Barbara County championship, and students spending more than 80,000 hours volunteering in the community.

DPNews live-streamed the ceremony and used a drone for a bird's eye view of the graduates walking into the stadium, wearing the school colors of gold and blue. 

The Class of 2018 has 539 graduates, according to the school district.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
