June 2, 2008 - Cindy Votruba
This past Sunday I covered Marshall High School's graduation. It's been a couple of years since I've worked a weekend, but it's always fun to be part of a big event. And especially when the kids don't mind if you're there, in the media center, trying to get a few candid shots before they had to line up. Or when they muddled their way getting in alphabetical order while you weaved in and out of the amoeba of students shooting photos at random. Some of them noticed and posed. Others laughed at fellow students saying "oh, you're gonna be in the paper."

I more or less was ahead of the parade of seniors as they made their way to the gym. Then I got in position, tried shooting a few photos as they went up the aisle to their seats. Several shots were blurry, but oh well.

I like to challenge myself with some photos. Attempting to get that moment where MHS principal Brian Jones turns over the tassel of another student or when a couple of seniors happily show off their new diploma.

I've watched many of these kids grow from elementary students to 17- and 18-year-olds. Sometimes it makes me feel a little old, but proud.

And one of those moments came when the senior class applauded for fellow classmate Jamine Swanson as she received her diploma. That was just so cool. That also shows a lot of respect.
