The sun broke from the clouds Friday and Saturday, as the 2010 graduates of Camas and Washougal high schools celebrated the culmination and accomplishments of the past four years.
Camas High School, with a senior class of around 330 students, gathered at McKenzie Stadium in Vancouver on Friday.
It has been some time since the Papermakers’ graduation was not held at Doc Harris Stadium, but Principal Steven Marshall made the crowd feel at home when he commented, “We may be standing on Evergreen School District’s turf, but tonight, this is our house.”
Graduating senior Jordan Ilarde welcomed the audience with kind words, emphasizing the ties and friendships that held the class of 2010 together.
“Regardless of our roots, today, we are together as one class,” she said. “We hold our heads high with our futures in mind, with our pasts in our hearts.”
