Vandegrift graduation took place Friday night with approximately 550 seniors at the H-E-B Center. Prior to commencement ceremonies, many members of the class of 2018 participated in “senior walks”, where they walked through the halls of the local elementary and middle schools they attended.
“I think it’s really for closure and also I’m always amazed how excited everyone is to see where the students are going,” VHS college and career transition coordinator Sarah Spradling said. “I think the seniors have been working so hard and from my perspective, the celebration is so fast at the end. So I think we need to draw out that celebration so it will be really nice and fulfilling for students.”
