Cornell Hosts Naturalization Ceremony

The United States Citizenship and Immigration Services under the leadership of Neville Island Resident, Michael Leon, recently held a Naturalization Ceremony at Cornell. A total of 58 individuals from 29 countries became U.S. Citizens in our auditorium that day. Cornell students and staff actively participated in the ceremony. Mrs. Fuga’s eighth grade civics students helped get everyone to their seats and Junior High Student Council President and eighth grade civics student Kiara Clarit spoke to the new citizens about what citizenship means to her. Mrs. Heigley, Mrs. Foster, and Mrs. Lubitz’s first grade students made cards for the new citizens and lead the Pledge of Allegiance. Mrs. Thomas’ third grade students congratulated the new citizens and gave them American flags as well. The Cornell School District is proud to be able to participate in the Naturalization Ceremony.
