Disney Channel stars Zendaya, Olivia Holt, and Austin North all graduated from Oak Park High School last night, along with Lauryn McClain and olympic gymnast Gabby Douglas! The school has a special program that allows student who were tutored on set or from home to still be a part of its big graduation ceremony.
Z tweeted that even though she didn't know any of the other students, they were all incredibly welcoming and congratulatory. So sweet!
So I'm doing my graduation rehearsal and I don't know anyone but they cheered when my name was called, thanks guys, ya'll the real MVP's 😂😊— Zendaya (@Zendaya) June 11, 2015
After the ceremony, Z posted a very heartfelt message on Instagram emphasizing just how important education really is.
Shout out, not just to all the 2015 grads but to the soon to be! Please remember knowledge is one of the most powerful gifts we have the privilege of receiving...don't take that for granted. To every soon to be grad, know that you CAN do it! (if I can get through it then anyone can😂) It's a long road, so many things will pose as obstacles in your way and at times the end seems further and further away, but please remember the importance of that beautiful mind you have and all the limitless powers you hold. All my love😘 #sorryforgettingdeep😂
