Bishop Kenny High School visited Duval County Courthouse on Jan. 24 to witness a naturalization ceremony.

The ceremony, witnessed by select students from Student Government, NJROTC and Choir, was the induction of 39 immigrants from 26 countries all around the world into United States citizenship. 

The ceremony also held speeches from notable people, such as Chemistry teacher Vicki Schmitt and Jacksonville Mayor Donna Deegan, who both spoke of immigration stories from their families.

Although usually held in federal court, the hearing was moved to the state courthouse for the largest attendance possible and was overlooked by Chief Judge Timothy Corrigan.
