A reception following the ceremony was hosted by the church’s Agape Sunday School class.

An alternative academic high school that is part of Granbury ISD, STARS provides an optional setting with flexibility and personalized self-paced courses for high school students whose needs are not met in the traditional school. The acronym stands for Self-Motivated Teens Achieving Responsibility and Success.

Over nine hundred students have graduated from STARS since its founding in 1994.
