Graduates who submit their information by April 1, 2015 will be recognized at the Tuesday, April 28, 2015 City Council meeting, at 6:30 p.m.

Prior to the recognition, the higher education alumnae and their guests will be invited to attend a private reception, hosted by Mayor Bao Nguyen and the Garden Grove City Council, at 5:30 p.m. During the private reception, each graduate will be entered into an opportunity drawing for a chance to win an Apple iPad Air 2, sponsored by Signal Hill Petroleum, or a $100 gift card from Target.
