Perseverance was the word of the day for Vallejo High School and John Finney High School 2023 graduates on Monday.
“You’ve shown perseverance,” Vallejo City Unified School District Superintendent William Spalding told the group at a special ceremony for students unable to participate in June’s graduation ceremony because of a lack of credits.
