UA officials congratulate future freshmen at local high school

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

In a prelude to graduation, 75 Flowing Wells High School seniors walked across the cafeteria stage on Friday, but not to get their diplomas.

Forget the standard acceptance letter in the mail. Instead, University of Arizona officials were there in person to hand out certificates and congratulate the students on getting accepted into the U of A.

Organizers said it's the first event of its kind for them. The hope is the personal touch ultimately makes a difference in the students' academic careers.
