Social media users can also congratulate their graduates ahead of the ceremony by tweeting well wishes with the hashtag #WJCCGRAD18.

“High school graduations are joyous occasions that bring family and friends together to acknowledge both an end and a beginning. It is time to celebrate the hard work that has taken place over 13 years of schooling and to look ahead with anticipation to the next phase of these graduates’ lives — the new adventures that come with college, work or military service. We hope this community will join us in publicly acknowledging the notable achievements of the Class of 2018,” Superintendent Olwen Herron said.
