2017 Honor Graduates and Educators of Influence

Denton Independent School District honored its top graduates and the teachers who influenced them at a special ceremony Thursday, May 11 at the LaGrone Advanced Technology Complex.

The ceremony, organized and hosted by the Denton Public School Foundation, featured ten graduating seniors from each of the district’s three comprehensive high schools – Denton, Guyer and Ryan – and three from its alternative high school, Fred Moore. Students were honored for their achievements in academics and extracurricular activities throughout their high school careers.

Each student chose an educator to recognize for his or her impact in the student's life. A letter written by each student to his or her educator of influence was read during the event.
