NUMBER OF GRADUATES: 418

VALEDICTORIAN: Thapani Sawaengsri

SALUTATORIAN: Sasha Menendez

SPEAKERS: Principal Carl Green, assistant principal for curriculum Glennis Perez, senior class president Alyssa Abramson, Menendez and Sawaengsri

QUOTE: "Many of us had bruises in places we don't want to talk about." — Abramson, joking about a moment in the past year when a tug-of-war rope broke, sending all the seniors to the floor.

SPECIAL NUMBER: This year is the 100th anniversary of Brandon High, which opened in 1914.

NICE TOUCH: Brandon High's band performed songs from Disney's Frozen before the ceremony, keeping the crowd amused and alive despite delays.

GAME CHANGER: Amid severe thunderstorms and traffic jams from the Zac Brown concert taking place next door at the amphitheater, the ceremony began 20 minutes late, though the elements kept many students from arriving to the ceremony at all.
