Elma graduates turn tassels at Elma fairgrounds

More than 100 Elma High School seniors ended their high school careers in a graduation ceremony at the Elma fairgrounds pavilion on a sunny Saturday afternoon.

Guests filed into the pavilion, stopping to provide their names for the limited seating, while students gathered on the east end of the building. Each was given a rose before they headed toward their seats.

Valedictorian Jasmine Raab, who plans a career as a veterinarian after attending the University of Washington, addressed her classmates, followed by her friend and salutatorian Sage Ainsworth.

Family members cheered as their graduates crossed the stage, receiving their diplomas, one by one, before moving graduation tassels to the left at the conclusion of the ceremony.
