With some mortarboards aglow with lights, a few with painted pictures and necks swathed in flowers, the graduates of Buckingham Charter Magnet High School officially crossed the threshold into adulthood Friday at The Mission church.
The school’s 24th commencement ceremony had a few tears, a lot of laughter and music to see the young adults off with a proper goodbye and hello.
Mentioned often by the speakers is the uniqueness of the graduating Class of 2018.
Principle Paul Tytler noted that these students choose to stand united in support of each other. He hoped that they took away from their four years of high school a confidence to speak from their hearts, compassion and courage to stand and endure.
