Each graduate has a unique story. Let me share a little about Anton Mitchell’s story.
Anton started his journey with Lumberton ISD in Kindergarten. His freshman year at LHS he moved to Beaumont and then on to Buna where he dropped out of school to help support his family through health issues. Once he was able to return to school, Anton chose the LHS Grad Academy. The Academy provided Anton with the opportunity to gain the necessary credits to graduate from HS. When asked what this meant to him, Anton says, “The Grad Academy means a lot because it allowed my dreams to come true. It is a big achievement. It took a village and six years but I did it!”
Anton will walk across the graduation stage this Friday night with the LHS Class of 2022.
The mission of Lumberton ISD is to “Challenge & inspire all students to develop their talents, becoming the best version of themselves”. The LHS Grad Academy helps students achieve their best version of themselves to go out into the world as Raiders Today. Leaders Tomorrow.
