• The Washoe County School District celebrates the class of 2024 with our annual Countdown to Graduation celebration. Each of these 20 students is outstanding in their own way, overcoming obstacles, succeeding in school, and making plans for a bright future. Whether starting a career, entering military service, or heading to college, they are ready to embark on their next adventure! Each student was hand-selected by their principal to represent their high school in the district, and will be honored for their remarkable courage, determination, and accomplishments both on and off campus. The campaign kicks off on Tuesday, May 28, and continues through Friday, June 7.
