Breavian Lockhart graduated along with the Summer Creek High School Class of 2019 May 25. Judge Laryssa Korduba was in attendance to show him that hard work always pays off. Lockhart, formerly a truant student at Summer Creek High School, walked into Korduba’s courtroom with one item in hand. This was his second court date of his senior year after missing 25 days of school at Summer Creek.
As he approached Korduba’s bench alongside Humble ISD Truancy Officer Veronica Rios and a Harris County assistant district attorney, he happily presented the judge with an invitation to attend his graduation where he will walk across the stage along with the rest of his class.
Korduba and Rios have been working with Breavian since the beginning of his senior year when his absences exceeded 25 days. Breavian took Korduba’s advice from his previous court appearance and went back to attending school, wrote a two-page handwritten essay, and made up all of his missed classes in order to walk across the stage this month.
“I am so proud of Breavian. I knew if he put his mind to it, he could graduate with his classmates. Now he will make an excellent role model to his two younger siblings,” said Korduba.
Breavian will be attending Louisiana State University in the fall of 2019 where he plans to study criminal justice. His mother, Debra Lockhart, also takes pride in and shares Breavian’s passion for law enforcement; she graduated from a security officer academy in 2005 with over 60 hours of training. She thanked Korduba for playing a vital role in getting her son back on the right path to graduation.
