EL PASO, Texas (KTSM) — “Wow, what a school year we’ve had,” Socorro Independent School District Superintendent Dr. José Espinoza confessed in the opening of a district-wide video announcement released Saturday.
The district says they’ve never wavered in their desire to recognize the graduating Class of 2020 in formal, in-person graduation ceremonies. That’s why they’ve made the decision to host graduations for each school beginning in July at the Socorro Activities Complex.
