The celebration will take place on Sunday, May 27, 2012 from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. at Centro Cultural de la Raza in Balboa Park.
With a large Filipina/o American community in San Diego, it is important to celebrate the successes of our graduating youth. FilGrad is a graduation organized by the Filipina/o American community that recognizes the academic and community achievements of all San Diego High School Filipina/os graduating seniors.
“The reason I wanted to do this was because I promised my mom when I was younger I would look into the audience and say ‘I did it, I graduated!” – Eddie Bernardo, Westview HS c/o 2011
KAMP, KCS, and FILAMEDA will be partnering with several community organizations to contribute to the success of this event.
