While the cheers that usually come from La Cañada High School's football stadium bleachers are for a touchdown or a Spartan victory, the air horns and screams on June 16 were to commemorate the end of an era.
There were more people than seats at LCHS' graduation, as the stairs were lined with reclining spectators who gave up on finding a seat. The crowd was determined to catch a glimpse of the Class of 2010.
"During our high school years we have distinguished ourselves as one of the most talented classes to ever come through this school," ASB President Mary Young said. "High school has been the best time of our lives, but it will only get better."
The soon-to-be graduates were adorned in robes bearing the school colors of maroon and gold as they entered the stadium from two sides. Some waved to their fans in the stands, screaming their name. When the students took their seats and turned their back to the crowd, some proudly displayed their future collegiate destinations as different school insignias and colors showed on the back of their caps.
