Graduation day

The long-awaited graduation day came for seniors at four local high schools last week. In the top photo, the faces on Vicksburg High School seniors, who received diplomas Thursday night, seemed to best sum up the universal emotion of exuberance. Clockwise from bottom right, Porters Chapel Academy grads throw their caps into the air at City Auditorium after walking for their diplomas May 19; Warren Central High School senior Gloria Anderson runs to give cousin Charlene Wallace a hug before the commencement ceremony Friday night; and St. Aloysius High School graduates John Halpin Caldwell and Valerie Wright embrace in the lobby of the Vicksburg Convention Center after their graduation ceremony Saturday morning.
