6/17/11: Over 200 students graduated from Burlington High School Friday morning. For more than 60 of those graduates, English is not their native language. Yessi Gar-Elnabi held a graduation party at King Street Center earlier in the week to celebrate this accomplishment with some of his fellow seniors, teachers and principal.

Music: Bearquarium, "The Punch Within"
