HUDSON COUNTY — Among the 849 seniors who filled Union City High School’s auditorium June 23, senior Itzel Alvarez’s presence exemplified their never-give-up attitude. “I got pregnant at the age of 16,” revealed Alvarez, 18, as she displayed a cap saying, “Bella, Mommy did it!”
She added, “People really didn’t think that I was going to graduate high school.”
