Many of the Jesse Bethel High School students graduating on Friday morning may call their commencement the realization of a dream. However, it was something else for William Spalding.
Spalding, the Vallejo City Unified School District Superintendent, told the Class of 2023 they should be thanking “their people” who helped get them to this rewarding moment.
Spalding told the students to “look to their left, and then look their right” before waving. He continued by asking the 2023 class to look at a few rows of counselors and teachers sitting nearby.
