VACAVILLE — Members of Vacaville High School’s class of 2013 braved the hot weather Saturday morning to collect their diplomas and offer a heartfelt thanks to their teachers and families.
“It is a great class,” Principal Ed Santopadre said of the graduates he described as accomplished, funny and into helping the community. “We will miss them.”
The class of 447 graduating seniors marched out onto the field in Vacaville High’s Zunino Stadium amid rising temperatures that brought in Vacaville paramedics to care for a couple of people who were overcome by the heat. Both caps and programs did double duty as fans to fight off some of the heat, and umbrellas were out in force in the stands to create shade.
