The graduates were surrounded by family and friends creating a standing room only event.

The excitement was heard from the stands as parents, family and friends cheered as their graduate crossed the stage. Cheers were heard on the floor as well coming from the graduates and faculty as their friends made their way across the stage.

Several of the Clarksville High faculty members had their own children in this graduating class. Hugs and “high fives” were given as the new graduates made it back to their seats.

The smiles were abundant everywhere you looked. This was indeed a celebration.
