On June 21, at least hundred parents and family members of some Port of Los Angeles High School students were left out of the graduating ceremony happening inside the Warner Grand because the theater was filled to capacity. All the families waiting outside had tickets.

According to one parent, Virginia Ramos, school officials said some may have copied tickets and entered the ceremony, but that has not been confirmed at this time.  Each graduate was given six tickets.

Three graduates, Jacquelyn Valdez, Kevin Andrade, and Antenas Mercado walked out of the ceremony before even walking the stage to accept their diplomas. Three graduates, Jacquelyn Valdez, Kevin Andrade, Antenas Mercado, left the ceremony before walking the stage.The graduates said they didn’t see a point in walking the stage if their parents couldn’t be there.

Valdez’ mother, Maria, said it was illogical that she graduates when the family is outside. The principal has disappointed very much. this is the last daughter I have to graduate.

This year marked the first full graduating class where the students spent all four years at Port of Los Angeles High School.
