La Jolla High School’s 2023 graduating class of more than 280 students culminated the school’s centennial year June 14 by celebrating another milestone — 100 percent of the senior class was awarded diplomas on graduation day.

Principal Chuck Podhorsky said it was the first time in his 27 years as an educator that he had seen such a feat.

Caroline Cammon founded four clubs in her two years on the campus, continuing activism she began in Texas. She also has worked districtwide and is president-elect of the NAACP San Diego Youth Council.

Among this year’s graduating seniors are 21 California Scholarship Federation lifetime members — a status awarded to students who fulfilled grade and volunteer requirements for four total semesters — and 46 Cum Laude Society inductees, which is determined by the students’ grade point average during the first semester of senior year (the top 20 percent are offered membership).
