More than 360 Will C. Wood High School seniors celebrated the end of their final year of high school on Friday evening at Wood’s Wildcat Stadium.
Clad in royal blue caps (with gold tassels) and gowns, the graduates walked with dignity to their chairs set up on the football field as the school band and orchestra played the traditional “Fanfare and Processional” by Sir Edward Elgar.
The grandstands were completely filled on both sides. Hundreds of family members, relatives and friends looked on with pride, some sounding horns, others waving and cheering and calling out to the graduates. The scoreboard cleverly displayed “Home 20, Visitor 19” (reading 2019) with the time clock set at 20:19.
