For the first time since it became a high school, proud Will C. Wood graduates accepted their diplomas Friday on their home turf.
“Our own field, that is awesome,” graduate Jacob Gooding said.
Wood Principal Adam Rich heartily agreed, saying “it has been a long time coming for our students and it is wonderful that our alumni will get to see it.”
Clad in school colors, 358 graduating seniors stepped up to get their diplomas as friends and family cheered them on in a breezy Friday evening ceremony that had the stands on both sides of the recently completed Wildcat Stadium packed.
