South High Patriots host naturalization ceremony

Parkway South High School hosted a special naturalization ceremony on Friday, May 1.  Ninety-four people from 36 countries were sworn in as United States citizens by the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS).

South High government students witnessed the ceremony; the school's band played "America the Beautiful" and "Dream the Impossible Dream," before the ceremony; and student council officers presented the new citizens with little American flags. Several sociology students acted as hosts and hostesses and the culinary arts students prepared cookies and punch for a reception following the event.

Dudley McCarter, Parkway School Board member and lawyer, spoke at the ceremony.

Art Nieto, a grounds crew supervisor at Parkway North High School, was one of the new citizens sworn in on Friday.
