Thunderstorms and heavy rains stayed away long enough to not put a damper on Pomona High School's graduation, which went off without a hitch on May 18 at the North Area Athletic Complex.
Pomona's graduating seniors were freshmen in 2020 when the COVID-19 pandemic hit, and lamented the difference in their expectations for high school in comparison with how the last four years played out. There was a sense of perseverance as class speakers looked back on the trying times they endured with their peers early in the pandemic.
Pomona's class president, class speaker and valedictorians gave speeches, along with a faculty member selected by the graduating class. Pomona's choir performed for the crowd near the closing of the ceremony.
