Jordan Valley students and Hillcrest High School seniors will turn their tassels at commencement exercises this spring.

At 3 p.m., Friday, May 20, Jordan Valley will celebrate its graduates in a ceremony at Midvale Middle School’s auditorium, 7852 Pioneer St., Midvale.

Honoring Jordan Valley students will be Canyons School District Superintendent Rick Robbins and Assistant Superintendent for Curriculum and School Performance Bob Dowdle.

Dowdle also will speak at Hillcrest High’s commencement exercises, which will be held at 9:30 a.m., Wednesday, May 25, in the Maverik Center, 3200 Decker Lake Drive, West Valley.

About 450 Hillcrest High seniors will turn their tassels in a rite of passage at graduation in front of invited families, friends and guests. Graduating seniors will be given ticket information.

The graduation theme comes from human rights activist Malcolm X: “Education is our passport for the future; for tomorrow belongs to the people who prepare for today.”

Also, to commemorate Canyons School District’s first graduating class that will include students who have spent their entire K-12 school years in the district, each graduate will receive a gift from the Canyons Board of Education and Administration signifying their place in Canyons District’s history.
