Brownsville ISD began the commencement season with two Baccalaureate ceremonies held at the Rivera gym on Sunday, May 22.  Several hundred 2016 graduates representing 7 early college high schools and 2 alternative high schools wore their caps and gowns for the first time and listened to an inspirational message from Rigo Chacon, a broadcast journalist and founder of Abrazos and Books.  Parents and friends filled the bleachers to support their graduates.   View more photos.
