The bleachers at Corbus Field were packed Thursday night by hundreds of people who were celebrating their championship.
No, it wasn’t a football game — it was the graduation ceremony of the Vallejo High School seniors.
More than 320 students dressed in red and white cap and gowns received their diplomas Thursday at the ceremony signifying the end of their high school career.
“It’s been a roller coaster,” co-salutatorian Wing Chu said in her speech. “We saw the birth of the ninth grade academy, change of mascots, … We’ve been through a lot. But we’ve come out unscathed.”
Another salutatorian Izabela Tolentino reminded her classmates that the future is unpredictable.
“Although the pieces might not fit your picture, the pieces might fit another picture,” Tolentino said.
In the same spirit valedictorian Marah Uy also encouraged the other graduates to never give up.
