Country High graduates 86 students – The Reporter

By Richard Bammer

Country High School graduated 86, the largest class in the continuation school’s history, during an outdoor ceremony Thursday evening.

Held at Tom Zunino Stadium, the commencement started at 6:30 p.m. sharp and ended 30 minutes later. One by one, the graduates, clad in royal blue caps and gowns, walked across a makeshift stage set up football field’s 50-yard line, give or take a few feet, to pick up their hard-earned and coveted diplomas.

With the announcement of each graduate’s name, varying volumes of cheers erupted in the sun-shaded westside bleachers, where an estimated 500 people — families, friends and relatives — gathered to observe the proceedings.
