Nearly 200 Academy Seniors Set to Graduate

This weekend, 190 Lake Union academy seniors are donning their caps and gowns to celebrate their academic achievements.

The Lake Union congratulates the Class of 2024 and joins them, their families, and friends in celebrating this memorable milestone in their journey to excellence. "In addition to the support of families, the professionalism and dedication of educators, the encouragement of classmates, among others, it has been the Lord, Himself, who has seen you through," said Lake Union Education Director Ruth Horton in a message to the graduates. "You will never fail as you trust in Him, allowing Him to continue to lead as you advance to the next phase of your education and journey."
