Centennial Graduate Initiative
WHO IS A CENTENNIAL GRADUATE?
A Centennial Graduate is any New Mexico student who graduates from High School in the year 2012, the anniversary of New Mexico's statehood. Students from any New Mexico public or private school, as well as home schooled students are eligible. Centennial Graduates must meet all graduation requirements as defined in New Mexico Statute.
THE CENTENNIAL GRADUATES INITIATIVE (CGI) VISION
The vision of the Centennial Graduates Initiative (CGI) is for New Mexico to have a record number of high school graduates in 2012. These graduates will make history and set a new standard for academic achievement for future generations of New Mexican students.
STUDENT PARTICIPATION IN THE CENTENNIAL GRADUATE INITIATIVE
Students, teachers and administrators are encouraged to visit their Centennial Graduates website at www.nmcentennialclass.com. This website was created specifically for the Class of 2012.
The website belongs to the Class of 2012 and we want it populated and designed by the students. We encourage all you students to share your stories, projects and vision of what it means to you to be a Centennial Graduate. As a student, you will have the opportunity to create your own page and the ability to link to other students throughout New Mexico.
The website will provide current information on how to get involved and how to contact all of the CGI partners.
Over the next four years more exciting components of the CGI will be announced, including scholarship opportunities, service learning projects, a logo competition and other statewide New Mexico Centennial projects. The success of this initiative depends on you.
