The graduating class of 2022 received their diplomas, Saturday, May 28 on the Ignacio Sports Field. The commencement ceremony marked a rebirth of the more traditional graduation ceremony, pre-pandemic. In 2020 a drive-thru graduation was held due to COVID-19 restrictions and a parade was incorporated to allow all who could not attend to congratulate the graduates. In 2021 a limited attendance graduation ceremony was held outdoors with strict social-distancing guidelines in place with a parade as the year before. This year there were no restrictions, and a parade was held.
