So long to all that

M-A grads set off for the future

There were requests to stand and to be seated. There were prepared remarks, and music sung by a choir. There were tears. At times, it was a solemn occasion, but only at times. Because there was also laughter and whoops of enthusiasm, and a moment at the end when hundreds of hats were thrown carelessly into the air.

Yes, folks, it's happened once again. At 4 p.m. on Thursday, June 7, seniors from Menlo-Atherton High School gathered with friends and family at the football field to celebrate the bittersweet moment of graduation.

After the national anthem and the procession to seats, seniors Max Goldenstein, Rafael Rios Barajas, Kendra Wiley, Francisco Gonzalez, Zach Abt and Adam Winkworth spoke.

Among their titles assigned to their remarks: "High School 101," "What is High School," and "And other questions."

Officials from the Sequoia Union High School District handed out diplomas, including Superintendent James Lianides, Assistant Superintendent Enrique Navas, and board members Alan Sarver and Allen Weiner. Guidance counselors Francine Andrade and Jason Kubo and bilingual resource teacher Steve Ready called the seniors to the stage.
