Thirty-eight earn their diplomas from CCPS summer school

Charles County Public Schools (CCPS) celebrated summer commencement exercises Aug. 8 at Thomas Stone High School. Thirty-eight members of the Class of 2018 earned their diplomas after finishing course work over the summer.

“This accomplishment should not be taken lightly,” Marvin Jones, executive director of schools, said. “Through all of the challenges that you faced and all the opportunities to give up, you didn’t. You pressed on and you persevered. Your diploma is just as important as anyone else’s and perhaps, even more meaningful thanks to the road you traveled to get here.”

“It is only the beginning,” he said. “You now showed that you have what it takes to succeed, and you are ready for the world. Now go out and conquer it.”

The Southern Maryland Chronicle is a local, small business entrusted to provide factual, unbiased reporting to the Southern Maryland Community. While we look to local businesses for advertising, we hope to keep that cost as low as possible in order to attract even the smallest of local businesses and help them get out to the public. We must also be able to pay employees(part-time and full-time), along with equipment, and website related things. We never want to make the Chronicle a “pay-wall” style news site.

To that end, we are looking to the community to offer donations. Whether it’s a one-time donation or you set up a reoccurring monthly donation. It is all appreciated. All donations at this time will be going to furthering the Chronicle through hiring individuals that have the same goals of providing fair, and unbiased news to the community. For now, donations will be going to a business PayPal account I have set-up for the Southern Maryland Chronicle, KDC Designs. All business transactions currently occur within this PayPal account. If you have any questions regarding this you can email me at

Thank you for all of your support and I hope to continue bringing Southern Maryland the best news possible for a very long time. — David M. Higgins II
