Spartans rock the cap and gown | Slideshow

Check out some photos from last Friday’s Sumner High School graduation.

More than 430 seniors strolled across the stage Friday night, received their diplomas and returned to their seats as graduates of Sumner High School. Commencement exercises took place at the White River Amphitheatre.

It was noted this year’s graduates have secured more than $2 million in scholarship money and special recognition went to those recipients, along with those graduating as officially bi-literate; those who completed Running Start, thus earning a two-year college degree; those completing Career and Technical Education programs; and those who have committed to joining the U.S. military.
