TUCSON, Ariz. - Every single graduate from San Miguel's High School is heading to college this fall.

The students were excepted to more than 500 colleges, but all of them picked spots at just 10 different schools, including Pima Community College and the University of Arizona.

Not only did the entire class of 77 seniors graduate and get accepted into college, a feat they have been accomplishing since 2008, but many have been rewarded with a four-year tuition scholarship. The final amount of money in scholarships totaling at $17 Million.

"It really did start with San Miguel," one student said. "Being involved in student government as much as i was, being president, being all of that in class, really has showed me that's what i want to do in the future."
