Daily Republic: Wood graduates brave heat to enter adult world

VACAVILLE — Will C. Wood High School graduates and their families did not let near-century-mark temperatures keep them from enjoying the crowning achievement of the students’ school careers Friday night.

“What a fine-looking group of sweaty graduates you are,” said Wood Principal Cliff DeGraw, welcoming the 499 members of his school’s class of 2013 onto the football field at Zunino Stadium.

Graduation programs were used more as fans to keep family members cool than as guides to the evening’s ceremony. Most of the audience clustered on the west side of the stadium in whatever shade they could find, only filling the east-side bleachers when there was no more room on the west side.
