What I learned is that Valley High School is battalion of heroes. It was full of them...all these fish that, no matter how they tried, could never climb that tree of mainstream education.
Their graduation theme was: “Everything we never expected.”
Which, in fact, was true for everyone attending. All of them, at one time or another (or for a long time), never expected this particular group's graduation to be their reality. But here they were, graduates surrounded by loved ones, experiencing what this coming of age ceremony really means.
