Templeton High School celebrated another successful graduating class Thursday night at Templeton Eagle Volunteer Stadium.
A total of 203 seniors graduated, including three foreign exchange students.
The valedictorian was Shonee Freed Doerr, and the three salutatorians were Trey Lowerison, Elijah Pinson and Lauren Shin.
According to the school, Doerr has a 4.50 GPA and plans to attend UC Berkeley; and the three salutatorians tied with a 4.4464 GPA. Lowerison also plans to attend UC Berkeley, while Pinson plans to attend Cuesta College and Shin plans to attend UC Santa Barbara.
About 92 percent of the graduating students reported to the high school that they will attend college. In addition, 3 percent reported plans to enlist in the military, while the remaining 5 percent are looking to join the workforce or attend a trade school.
“In terms of overall achievement, positive attitudes and community partnerships, the Class of 2015 is one of the best classes to graduate Templeton High School,” Principal Andrew Cherry said.
In addition, 39 students graduated Monday from Templeton’s Eagle Canyon Continuation High School and Independent Study High School programs. More than 500 people turned out for that commencement ceremony, which was held at the Templeton High School gymnasium.
Thursday’s ceremony at Templeton High School was also an important milestone for Cherry, who announced earlier this year the he plans to step down from his post in June to spend more time with his family.
Templeton Unified School District is slated to announce his successor this week.
