Less than an hour ago, the Seattle Lutheran High School Class of 2011 entered the school gym on the north side of The Junction and took their seats for the big ceremony. This year, SLHS has 40 graduates; school spokesperson Bil Hood says all have been accepted to colleges and universities. Co-valedictorians are Jessica Mikler and Michala Watford; salutatorian is Emma Mahboub. They are three of eight seniors graduating Summa Cum Laude, with a 3.8 GPA or higher; five are graduating Magna Cum Laude, 3.5-3.79 GPA (including Fred Lisko, also recognized recently by the Seattle Times as for his athletic achievements); seven are graduating Cum Laude, 3.2-3.49 GPAs. This is the 31st class to graduate from SLHS.
