DS Class of 2017 ends in the dark (with a surprising bang!)

 

DSHS Valedictorian Rachel Nix and Salutatorian Michael Martinets before start of processional.

 

The first official event to be held in the phenomenal new Tiger Stadium - the 2017 Dripping Springs High School Graduation Exercises - was blessed by pitch-perfect weather but delayed by 10 minutes due to the less-than-perfect traffic jam on Highway 290.

However, at exactly 8:10 p.m. DSHS Band Director Keith Lancaster launched the Wind Ensemble into the ever-familiar "Pomp and Circumstance" as the members of the Class of 2017 - clad in traditionally tasseled maroon caps and gowns with a gold stripe at the cuff - made their way into the stadium, filling almost 400 seats positioned in front of their academic mentors, administrators and an audience of families and other well-wishers.

Notably, this was the first graduating class in Dripping Springs High School history graduating in ceremonies held in Dripping Springs proper.
