Graduation 2019

Congratulations to Asheville High School and the School of Inquiry and Life Sciences at Asheville's Class of 2019!  Cougar Pride was alive and vibrant at UNCA's Kimmel Arena on Saturday, June 8th, as 319 students were awarded their high school diplomas.  Dressed in cardinal red, royal blue and black robes, students were celebrated by cheers from family, friends, and staff. The arena was filled with smiling faces there to celebrate the accomplishments and hard work of our newest Asheville City Schools Alumni.  


Collectively, high school graduates earned $9,474,994 in scholarships and grants. We congratulated them on their school successes and wished them well on their future endeavors.


To the Class of 2019, you will always be a part of the Cougar Family! Best wishes and Cougar Pride!
