San Miguel grads get major gift for college

TUCSON (KVOA) - San Miguel High School sent its largest graduating class into the world Friday night with a generous gift. 

Each of the schools’ 80 graduates is getting a check for $1,000 thanks to the Humberto Lopez Family Foundation. 

The school received the $80,000 gift at Friday’s drive-in graduation ceremony.  

The local businessman made the gesture because this is the twelfth consecutive year the school's graduates have had 100% college acceptance.
