A group of amiable high school seniors passed out black and white pamphlets to attendees while nearby, school district staff passed out full color programs.Inside the pamphlets distributed by students were listed the names and achievements of nine of Port Isabel High School’s top students, though the inscription on the front of the program read, “In honor of Class of 2016 Top Ten Students.”Inside the banquet hall the mood was festive as first Dr. Lisa Garcia, superintendent of schools, addressed the crowd, and later a guest speaker regaled attendees with jokes. Near the end of the night, honor roll students from 9th through 12th grade were recognized, including the nine seniors who had greeted attendees at the door.What was noticeably absent from official conversation, however, was any mention of those students in the 2016 graduating class Top 10.Want the whole story?
