Excitement and anticipation filled the air as the Camas High School class of 2014 began commencement ceremonies Friday evening.
Rain showers, which had been coming down on and off all day, stopped for good just a few hours before festivities at Doc Harris Stadium.
“The class of 2014 is one that is unlike any other,” said Kathleen Brumfield, class president. “This is a class made up of extraordinary and accomplished scholars, artists, athletes and so much more. The graduates here have excelled as individuals, but have also come together to contribute to the success that we have had as a whole.”
Principal Steve Marshall echoed that theme, noting that the senior class was very balanced and high achieving in diverse areas.
