Vacaville High School graduates were ushered out of high school Saturday and into adulthood, flanked by the teachers who helped them make it to graduation day.
Ron Thomas, the new principal, greeted students and parents to bid farewell to the graduating Class of 2018 and to Ed Santopadre, who has spent most of his career at Vacaville High.
“As your principal for little over a month, I have had to make many decisions but it is only fitting the man you met here your first day of Vaca High will be the man to see you off on your last day at Vaca High,” Thomas said.
Santopadre, assistant superintendent of educational services, took the stage to applause.
