Agassiz Secondary School graduates got a well-deserved sendoff this past weekend as the Agassiz-Harrison communities celebrated the class of 2021.
Following quiet, intimate graduation ceremonies for each student and a few of their closest loved ones, the graduates hit the road on Satuday (June 5) for the graduation parade. Members of the community cheered them on and honked horns as decorated cars, trucks and a big silver Wanderlodge bus carried the new graduates along the parade route.
