As Will C. Wood Principal Adam Rich put it in his commencement address before the 2020 graduates’ family and friends at Wildcat Stadium Saturday night, “Better late than never.”
About 150 of a graduating class of 320 marched onto the football field to Sir Edward Elgar’s “Pomp and Circumstance” at the in-person graduation ceremony that never happened last year due to COVID-19. Each student was permitted to invite up to eight family or friends.
Those graduates who did not attend may have been unable due to joining the military or attending colleges out of state or having careers distant from Vacaville. But those who did attend were treated to the full program that they missed last year, when they had to settle for a virtual program.
