It was all "Pomp and Circumstance" last week for Central High School's Class of 2007.
Families and friends filled the stands of the new P.E. Building at Western Oregon University on June 2 to recognize graduating seniors and wish them luck in their next endeavors.
One-hundred and fifty eight students walked during the commencement ceremony; 166 will receive diplomas.
Principal Sylvia Warren described this year's departing students as an "eclectic group" comprised of athletes, musicians, scholars and more.
"The things they will be going off to do after high school are as varied as they are," Warren said. "There are kids in this class that we are going to miss very much. They have been great to work with."
Earning 4.0 GPAs and sharing co-valedictorian honors were Dustin Abram-son; Jennifer Bruntmeyer, Timothy Deptula, Tyra Jannsson; Shannin MacCarthy; Sean Moore; Kacey Parks; Natasha Ruegsegger; and Jessica Uddell.
Grahame Bywater, who earned a 3.98 GPA, was the salutatorian.
