For the first time in a long time (since this new county high school opened, 13 years ago), there was a nice enough day for graduation to be held outside, in the football stadium. There was a crowd.
Weston, on the left in this photo, doing the perp walk.
He was wearing his honors sash (for those graduating with a 3.75 GPA or above) and his National Honor Society medal.
The show on the field:
The girlfriend was there with the band. She plays the flute.
They each had their little moment.
Then high school was officially over.
They always tell them they aren’t allowed to throw their caps. They’re pretty well-behaved, because mostly they don’t.
Notice the plastic fork.
There was cake, people!
Then he changed hats and she changed clothes and–
–he took her off to Texas with him because I’m tellin’ ya, these two canNOT be separated. I don’t know how they are going to bear it when he goes to college! She is one year behind him then she will be joining him at WVU.
