BIGGEST FAN CLUB: Friends and family surprised graduating senior Jacob Rivera outside the Fairgrounds Expo Hall, waving large signs spelling his name and bestowing him with a lei made of cash.

DROWNED OUT: Many in the crowd did not heed the standard request to keep noise to a minimum, so it was difficult to hear the graduates' names.

TUNED IN: The Armwood High Symphonic Winds held down the musical portions of the program with performances of Pomp and Circumstance and the Star-Spangled Banner.
