Beaumont Independent School District proudly recognized the exceptional achievements of top graduates from Beaumont United High School, Beaumont Early College High School, and West Brook High School at the 2024 Top Grads Luncheon held at the MCM Elegante Grand Ballroom.

The event, held on Tuesday, April 30, 2024, was an occasion of immense celebration for the students and the entire BISD community. The esteemed guest speaker for the event, Ozen High School alumnus and Microsoft Consultant Aaron Chambers, led audience members through his journey from BISD to becoming a viral social media sensation and reality TV personality. His inspiring story highlighted the transformative power of education and determination.

The top graduates were honored with Top Grads pins during the luncheon, symbolizing their remarkable accomplishments and dedication. Additionally, they received certificates of achievement for their hard work and commitment to academic excellence.

The students were also showered with gifts from the event's generous sponsors. Legacy Community Health - Beaumont, the Southeast Texas Food Bank, Lamar Institute of Technology, Gulf Credit Union, Julie Rogers Gift of Life Program, Jason's Deli, and Chick-fil-A contributed over $200 in prizes.
