Banning High School Hosts Commit to Your Future Day, Celebrates Class of 2022

Banning High School seniors celebrated their college and career decisions during a Commit to Your Future Day event on May 2, which included a fully decorated gym with an assortment of hand-painted college banners and graduation backdrops.

Students played games and cheered as they each placed signatures on their future school posters, including colleges, four-year universities and the armed forces.

“I cannot say thank you enough to Principal Valdivia and my piano teacher Robert Ronquillo for constantly pushing me to pursue more than I ever thought possible,” senior Hailey Guerrero said. “I have achieved so much over the past four years, and I am excited to apply what I have learned at California State University, Long Beach, in the fall.”

During the event, students connected with their peers and teachers, discussing goals for the future while reminiscing on their favorite moments as a Banning Bronco.

“We have a fighting factor here at Banning High, conquering any obstacle that comes our way,” Associated Student Body president and senior student-athlete Jordan Amis said. “Thank you, Principal Valdivia and all of my teachers for your constant support and I look forward to continuing my educational career at the University of California, Irvine, in the fall.”

Banning Unified will continue its festivities, holding a Class of 2022 Parade of Graduates on Saturday, May 28, the Senior Academic Excellence Awards Night, honoring top-performing students with awards and scholarships on Tuesday, May 31 and concluding with a commencement ceremony at Banning High School on Thursday, June 2.

“Thank you to our incredible educators and all those in Banning Unified’s academic services for leading and supporting our Banning Broncos,” Superintendent Terrence Davis said. “Congratulations to our graduates on their college and career commitments. We commend you for your resilience and wish you nothing but success in this exciting next chapter.”
