Pace Clay hosted its 2022 Graduation Ceremony at Highpoint Church recognizing eight Pace graduates. Each girl was presented with her diploma, followed by a tassel ceremony to signify her educational achievements.  

“Pace girls come from all backgrounds, but throughout their time at Pace, we teach them to embrace growth and change while working to invest in their futures,” said Cristina Helbling, Executive Director of Pace Clay. “Finding power through community, trusted support and self-discovery is an empowering moment in a girl’s life. These eight graduates are shining examples of what girls can accomplish.”  

Turning the page to the next chapter in her life, Theresa, Pace Clay Class of 2022 Salutatorian, shared parting words of wisdom, “After graduation, I plan to study Early Childhood Education. As Eleanor Roosevelt said, the future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams. I’d tell my younger self and fellow graduates; your dreams are possible. Remember to stay focused, and most importantly, don’t let anyone tell you that you can’t do something – you can.” 

Upon graduating from Pace Clay, girls find their voices and embody the organization’s guiding principles of strength, passion, and integrity with no bounds to their success, building a better and brighter world for us all.
