LGHS Class of 2010

He got it done. My baby done graduate from high school. He looked all handsome in his BLACK.
Black gown, black striped shirt, black tie. We were able to spot him a little easier from the middle of the crowd 'cause he wasn't wearing a light color like most of the grads.
Our High School has a casual but wonderful graduation.  We have the perfect setting with the school as a back drop and the crowd sitting/standing/talking/making noise on the front lawn.
This beautiful old school has been a landmark in our town since 1925 and has been the setting for several movies, and photos. It is such a classic old high school and when they remodeled it in 2005, the look and setup was not changed a bit.

The students file out in groups of 4. Every other group is boys in black followed by girls in white.
The kids get to choose one person that they get to "walk" with and they come down the steps just smiling.
Michael walked with Charlie. He went to kindergarten with Charlie, and they have been friends all the way through.
We then listen to 3 short speeches given by students who tried out for the job, and then they diplomas are given out.
Nice smile MBH!
The families are there to yell and some bring their foghorns. (Kathryn uploaded and app for that)
We had one of the younger crowds.
Hats fly and it's all over.
Good job Bud.
You are awesome!!!!
Onward and upward.

The very least you can do in your life is to figure out what you hope for. The most you can do is live inside that hope, running down its hallways, touching the walls on both sides.
