Students graduate with perfect attendance

Downey High’s Ada Hernandez also had perfect attendance.  

DOWNEY – Nine Warren High School students were honored before graduation ceremonies last week for having perfect attendance throughout all four years of high school.

“These nine students, out of a graduating class of approximately 860, accomplished what other students found unfeasible,” DUSD officials said in a statement.

The nine students are Donna Bellido, Kaushal Brahmbhatt, Xochitl Briseno, Faustino Diaz, Karen Lertpocasombat, Melissa Ly, Jensen Orense, Janett Padilla and finally, Pablo Chacon Jr.

Chacon has had perfect attendance since sixth grade, when he first enrolled in DUSD.

Downey High had one student with an unblemished attendance record: Ada Hernandez, who will study criminal justice at Rio Hondo College this fall and aspires to become a Downey police officer.
