Along with the end of the 2021-2022 school year, graduation is fast approaching and will take place Saturday at the Ford Center at noon. 

“I’m really glad that we’re able to graduate normally this year,” senior Rhoan Egemo said. “With the uncertainty that comes with COVID-19 and the trend from years past, it’s good that we’re able to run things as smoothly as we have before the pandemic.”

Although all seniors last year received 10 graduation tickets, this year they will receive 15 instead. 

“The fact that we get more tickets makes it a lot easier to invite friends and family that we might not have had room for previously,” senior Lalima Karri said. “I had a lot of people that I wanted to invite but wasn’t sure if I would be able to. But with the added tickets, I’ll be able to celebrate the day with more people.”

For most seniors, the idea of graduating is conflicting considering that a lot of their high school career was online. 

“It’s really unbelievable that we’re done with high school already,” senior Tushamma Rahim said. “I remember being online for my sophomore and junior years like it was just yesterday. It doesn’t even feel like I’ve been on campus for that long, it’s a weird feeling. But although graduation is bittersweet, I’m still excited to move on to a new part of my life and can’t wait to see what the future will bring.”
