Graduation traditions continue

The newly proclaimed graduates of the Hillsboro High School Class of 2015 celebrate with the traditional cap toss near the conclusion of commencement ceremonies Saturday afternoon. The original plan was to have an outdoor event, but by Thursday school officials decided to heed forecasts of thunderstorms and moved the event inside Robert C. Brown Gymnasium. Marion and Goessel high schools also had their commencements on Saturday afternoon, while Peabody-Burns, Centre and Canton-Galva lauded their graduates on Sunday. Phyllis Richert Photo
