Class of 2022 Senior Fever!

Graduating seniors from Beaumont United, West Brook and Early College High Schools (ECHS) enjoyed many end of year events as they completed their time with Beaumont ISD and prepared for their lives after high school.

The Class of 2022 has had its challenges, from the combination of Ozen and Central High Schools into Beaumont United, Hurricane Harvey, COVID-19, virtual learning and more. However, with discipline, focus and perseverance, they met their goals and prepared for graduation.

Besides final exams and finishing up school work, there were many fun activities leading up to the last day. Both Beaumont United and West Brook seniors visited their elementary schools to inspire the next generation and give thanks to their first teachers during the annual graduate walks. 

Beaumont United hosted a Senior Send-Off Week which included an awards night, sunset picnic, Project Graduation party and trip to San Antonio. 

“The Class of 2022 has honestly set the tone for classes to come,” said Beaumont United Student Activities Director Chantel Douglas. “Through trials and tribulations, they have excelled and achieved success. They are a force to be reckoned with, so get ready world!” 

West Brook students enjoyed a week of fun including senior sunset, Top 10% Graduate luncheon, a picnic and trip to Kemah. 

“Two thoughts come to mind when I think about these kids of the Class of 2022: resilient and kind,” said West Brook Student Activities Director Tisha Smith. “I truly love this class!”

On top of awards, a picnic and fun day, ECHS also graduated from Lamar Institute of Technology on May 13, 2022. Thirty-six students earned their associate’s degree, 15 walked with core completion and 113 earned level one certifications. 

“It was amazing to watch the class of 2022 overcome so many obstacles and not only with their high school diploma, but also graduate with a college degree as well,” said ECHS Principal Secretary Ashley Smith.

Congratulations to the Class of 2022!
