The 2021-2022 Liberty Union High School District Graduates of Distinction Program recipients were recently honored.
Two Liberty High School alumni — Chris Calabrese (1989) and attorney Alicia Kennon — and one Freedom High School alumnus — Colby Smith (2005) — received the honor.
Honorees have distinguished themselves through their accomplishments or contributions to their profession or community and are recognized for remaining true to the core values taught at LUHSD, according to the district website.
Kennon became the youngest equity partner in her law practice five years ago. Smith is an international makeup design artist for pop superstars such as Dua Lipa, Billie Eilish and Charlie XCX.
Calabrese is the Director of Student Services for the Brentwood Union School District.
The trio spoke to students at Heritage, Freedom, and Liberty High Schools on April 22, describing the struggles and triumphs they faced during their academic and professional careers, followed by a short question-and-answer session and a community reception.
