Starting Wednesday, thousands of Miami-Dade County public school seniors will stroll across stages from Homestead to Aventura to accept their high school diplomas.
Many of those students will have someone to thank for guidance and encouragement on the path to graduation — a friend, a parent, a teacher or others.
The Miami Herald would like to recognize all those mentors who helped anxious teens navigate course credits and college applications to become the Class of 2015.
We’re asking graduates to snap a photo with someone who played a big role on their road to high school graduation. Post it to social media with the hashtag, #GratefulGrad, and the Miami Herald may share your post with our social media followers.
Try to include the names of anyone pictured and a brief description of how your mentor helped you on the road to a diploma, as well as the name of your school.
