This year’s class included 630 Dragons who walked across the stage Friday night under amazing rain-free skies. Family and friends filled Dragon Stadium’s home side, which seats more than 7,000.

Before commencement began, a new tradition was started this year. The seniors loaded school buses at Carroll Senior High School and received a police escort to Dragon Stadium along Southlake Blvd. The students gathered in the auditorium and watched senior videos before leaving.

During the ceremony, Valedictorian Wongyeong Seong and Salutatorian Nikhil Ravi delivered speeches and spoke of traditions and friendships. Following graduation, the students attended Project Graduation, an overnight event held at Main Event in Grapevine.
