We often see videos of Blue-Chip athletes announcing their intentions for life after high school. Gyms are full of cheering students and family, cameras are flashing, and these young people are celebrated.

At Pyles, we don't think that this recognition should be limited to athletes, so we took action! On Sunday, April 22nd, we filled the Terrace Room at the Long Beach Petroleum Club with graduating seniors, family members, current staff, alumni, and other distinguished guests to celebrate these impressive young men!

Our emcee, "Smiley" spent time interviewing each senior to learn more about their Pyles experience and their future plans. We'd like to thank all of the alumni for their time volunteered, as well as financial contributions to support the honorees.

We are so proud of these young men and are excited to watch them on their journeys! Please see below for more photos!
