Senior Signing Day

Senior Signing Day May 2022

The Ysleta Young Women’s Leadership Academy (YWLA) will graduate its first class of seniors this June. YWLA is a free public all-girls school within Ysleta Independent School District and a partner school of the Young Women’s Preparatory Network. To celebrate this milestone of 100% college acceptance among its graduating seniors, YWLA hosted its first annual College Signing Day. The event featured celebratory remarks, a presentation featuring what college students plan to attend, and announcements of scholarships awarded to graduating seniors.

YWLA’s inaugural graduating class has earned over $11.5 million in merit-based scholarships, including 3 Questbridge matches, 2 Gates Scholars, a Dell Scholar, and a Terry Scholar. 

CONGRATULATIONS to all the seniors along with their families!
