NEW HAVEN, Ind. (Indiana's NewsCenter) - New Haven High School officials held the second annual 'Commitment to Graduate' ceremony Friday.
During the ceremony 227-freshman learned the importance of earning a high school diploma and how to make the best of high school.
Students were invited to sign a Graduation Commitment Board to be hung in the school until graduation.
Principal Greg Mohler says when preparing students for graduation, it's best to begin early.
Mohler says, “I think about all the things we need to do to get high school kids ready for graduation and why not start with the freshman kids? Why not put a foundation we can build on to get them ready for college and career readiness. So this program is extremely important."
School officials say people with a high school diploma earn an average $7,000 more per year than non-graduates.
