BRAWLEY â€“ Wednesday morning, Barbara Worth 8th graders and parents filled the BUHS Warne Field as friends looked on from the stands as graduates walked the stage and received their diploma from Principal Terry Mason.
On a warm day with a pleasant breeze, by order of last name, students who fulfilled the requirements to continue their education to 9th shook hands with the principal, received their diploma from one school trustee, then exited the stage to shake hands with a second trustee, and under better light conditions, get their photo.
Graduate Destenee Hocamp, 14, looks forward to her freshman year at BUHS. She has already made the Frosh Cheer team. However, she will be sad to leave an important person in her life the last two years, Mr. Taylor, vice-principal at Barbara Worth.
Hocamp said, â€œ Mr. Taylor helped me through a lot, Iâ€™m going to miss having him in my life.â€
