Bayshore High School graduation at a glance
Speakers: Students Serrenda Capers, Ryan Burnham and Principal David Underhill
Shining moment: From a front-row seat before the ceremony began, Stephanie Riviello, budget specialist with the Manatee County School District, began to tear up as her daughter, Samantha Post, entered the auditorium. Riviello's boss, budget director Heather Jenkins, attended the ceremony with her. When Post crossed the stage, Riviello crept up close to get a photo, and Post lost her cap as she was hugging district officials.
Never miss a local story.
Best quote: "It's time for the torch to be passed and for us to step up," Burnham told his fellow graduates.
Interesting: In keeping with tradition, students and faculty entered the auditorium with yellow roses -- the school's flower -- in hand.
