Heather Gonzales is momentarily overcome with emotion as she walks on stage to the sounds of "Pomp and Circumstance" during Sunday's graduation ceremony for St. Joseph High School. The ceremony was held at Victoria College.

Graduates of St. Joseph High School's class of 2011 slowly marched down the aisles of the Victoria College auditorium Sunday evening, waiting to receive diplomas at the other end.

In royal blue graduation caps and gowns, 91 graduating seniors gathered to celebrate their four years of high school and acknowledge the next four years they'll spend at college.

Texas A&M University, University of Texas, New York University, Arizona State University, Northeastern University, Rhodes College and St. Mary's University are merely a few of the 64 higher learning institutions the graduates of St. Joseph will be attending this fall.

"Our class will be able to spread it's charm and good fortune across the United States," Salutatorian Aimee Leona Fries said.

At St. Joseph High School, students are charged with acquiring a well rounded faith-based education throughout the school year year. And now that high school has been completed, The Victoria Advocate wanted to know if graduating seniors planned to continue their education at a Christian-centered university. Here's what the students had to say.
