VHS Graduation

Home Up


May 17th, 2019            

Today marks graduation day number two for our family! This time it is Samantha who is getting her turn to walk across the stage in front of approximately 560 of her fellow Venice High School classmates. Sam has worked hard throughout her school career, and today she checked off one of the big checkboxes on her way into adulthood. Although the second time is a little easier, a few tears were still shed knowing that we will soon be short two members of the family at home. In the grand scheme of things, knowing what an accomplishment this is, we were all smiles when Sam officially turned her tassel, marking her graduation complete. Congratulations Samantha. We love you with all of our heart, and are proud of the young lady you now are!
