Garza Independence High School celebrated 70 graduates on Wednesday evening.
The school's namesake, Gonzalo Garza, addressed the graduates and their friends and families at the Frank Erwin Center.
"Congratulations on your great success," he said. "You are graduating from the best high school in Texas."
Garza seniors were accepted to more than 30 four-year colleges, and the chess team won first place in the JV Division Texas Scholastic Chess Championships.
Congratulations to all the Garza Griffins in the Class of 2016!
