6th graders receive warm welcome on cold evening - Young Women's Leadership Academy holds White Rose induction ceremony

Oct. 27, 2020

What:   Warm welcome on cold evening: Sixth graders inducted into Young Women’s Leadership
               Academy with White Rose Ceremony

Who:    Delia McLerron, Young Women’s Leadership Academy principal
              YWLA’s newest students and their families

When:   Oct. 27 (Tues) – 6 p.m.
Where:  Young Women’s Leadership Academy, Cafeteria, 2123 W. Huisache Ave.

              During our Yellow safety phase, we ask media to please obtain visuals outside of
              the cafeteria

As parents drive their brand-new middle schooler to the cafeteria entrance, the young woman will step out and enter the cafeteria to participate in the annual White Rose Ceremony. The student will emerge from another cafeteria exit with a white rose and certificate, ready to be congratulated by her family. 

The annual ceremonial process – this year being conducted as a socially-distant, drive-through event – welcomes students into the YWLA sisterhood. Students receive a white rose at induction, a pink rose as they transition into high school, and a red rose at graduation. 

YWLA empowers young women to achieve their fullest potential with a rigorous, college-preparatory education that is free of cost to students. YWLA is one of three single-gender campuses in the District. SAISD has the only public single-gender schools in Bexar County.
