BY ROSANNA WEAVER — On June 3, Northwestern High School commencement guest speaker Marcus Wedge, from the Class of 2006, encouraged the graduates to pursue their dreams. He inspired students with a quote from Paul Coelho’s The Alchemist, “When you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it,” adding that hard work was necessary to fulfill dreams as well.

Students seated in the photo at the top of the page, on the front row of the stage (left to right) are Valedictorian Jazmin Salmeron-Lopez, Salutatorian Maria Mitiuriev, Student Government Association President Joseline Castillo Amaya, and National Honor Society President Phouc Nhan.
