Braden River High School graduation

Number of Graduates: 385

Speakers: Alexia Fernandez, Nicole Feldman, Emily Melchoir

Shining Moment: When a school administrator gradually honored every category of graduate, from the top 1 percent to those "joining the U.S. workforce."

Best quote: "We're going to craft this world, and I can't wait to see what it looks like when we're done." -- Nicole Feldman

Interesting sight: Graduate Donald Jones, who was to serve volunteer time Friday morning for showing up late to graduation practice Wednesday, asking senior class sponsor Evelyn Williams to cut him a break because his grandfather was visiting from Kansas.

-- Christine Hawes
