The graduation ceremony of Vallejo’s Jesse Bethel High School class of 2019, held at Vallejo High School’s Corbus Field on Thursday, differed in a couple of unusual ways from the typical such event.

For one thing, the Valedictorian’s speech hit some seriously political notes, not to mention the Valedictorian herself was the school’s first Latina woman to earn the honor.

But also, the class included two people tied to tragedies that shone an unfortunate spotlight on the city of Vallejo some 50 years apart.
