Temple Terrace Students Graduate in June

Ceremonies will take place a the state fairgrounds and Embassy Suites.

It’s time for Temple Terrace 12th-graders to don their caps and gowns and receive their diplomas.

King High School’s commencement ceremony will take place June 2 at 9:30 a.m. at the Florida State Fairgrounds.

Nearly 400 Lions will graduate in the Expo Hall, a change from the originally scheduled location, the USF Sun Dome. Because the dome is being renovated, the school district had to move 14 ceremonies to the fairgrounds.

King’s ceremony will be the first.

"I think they're going to be great leaders," said Principal Carla Bruning of the graduating class. "We have so much diversity among the group."

On June 12, 15 12th-graders will graduate from , a private Islamic school in Temple Terrace. The ceremony will take place at 5:30 p.m. at Embassy Suites near USF.

"Our graduating class has been very successful, both in their studies at AYA and in their college coursework," said Magda Elkadi Saleh, head of school.

The school's valedictorian is Maryam Fahda, and the salutatorian is Taymeyah Altoubah.

Some of the students have even been taking coursework at USF, and have been accepted into USF for the fall on full scholarships, Saleh said.

"We are very proud of our graduating seniors," she said.
