Raymondville ISD Graduation Night Highlights One Student's Unique Achievement

June 6 was a truly special day for Raymondville ISD. That night, hundreds of community members gathered to watch as students from Raymondville Early College High School (ECHS) and Raymondville Options Academic Academy (ROAA) graduated from high school. The ceremony was a culmination of years of hard work and dedication, marking a significant milestone for the young graduates and their families.

Among the many proud graduates, Ruth Nieto's day stood out. Ruth made the long trip from College Station that day to attend her graduation. She had been in College Station competing in the 4-H Educational Presentation Competition, an event where students showcase their knowledge and public speaking skills. Ruth's presentation, titled "The South Texas Fever Tick," advanced to the finals in the Beef category.

However, the timing was tight. Ruth made her finals presentation but had to leave College Station before the results were announced to make it back to Raymondville in time for her graduation ceremony. As Ruth sat at Ray Solis Field waiting to receive her diploma, the suspense about her competition results loomed in the air.

Graduation finished, and before the graduates and audience left, Deputy Superintendent Dr. Benjamin Clinton announced that Ruth Nieto was the State Champion in 4-H Educational Presentation. It was a moment of great pride for Ruth, her family, and the entire Raymondville ISD community, showcasing the excellence and determination of their students.

June 6, 2024, will be remembered for the graduation ceremony and a day that highlighted the exceptional talent within Raymondville ISD. Congratulations to Ruth Nieto and all the graduates for their remarkable achievements.
