Madera High Graduates 116th Class

MADERA - The graduates of Madera High School's 116th class walked two by two into their future during one of the longest playing of the "Pomp and Circumstance March" ever. At times it almost seemed as if no one was moving but once all the graduates actually took their seats the evening progressed smoothly. That is until there was a distraction for MHS Principal Kent Albertson, like a beach ball.

With record temperatures starting to top the century mark, parents came prepared to the outdoor graduation at Madera High's Memorial Stadium with bottles of drinking water. However at Albertson's direction, Madera Unified Security confiscated everyone's water at the gate. Yet the school  did provided bottles of water free of charge to Madera Unified board members and district employees. Of course bottled water was for sale to parents and visitors in the snack bar.
