In Angelina’s thank you note to the Alumni she said, ”My senior year I had to transfer to my neighborhood school, Roxborough High, and I think it was the best decision that I ever made. I met so many awesome people and found the sense of community that I was seeking. I quickly became involved in my school community and now I'm proud to be Roxborough alumni. At Roxborough, the teachers truly love their students and cared about their well-being. You could feel the sense of community throughout the school. I plan to be a teacher and hope I can love and inspire my students like my Roxborough teachers did for me."
We wish these graduates continued success as they embark on their college careers.
We would also like to thank all Alumni who have generously donated to our Scholarship Fund which enables us to award yearly scholarships to deserving graduates!
