THRILLER GRADUATION: Director Kelly Montero led the Lennard High School Band in entertaining parents and supporters before the late-starting graduation with Michael Jackson pop hits.
CONCERT CONFUSION: With the Zac Brown Band concert starting nearby at the MidFlorida Credit Union Amphitheatre, traffic and confusion over parking led to students and parents sprinting across U.S. 301 to make it to the commencement ceremony. Many were still filing in at the late 8:15 p.m. start time.
HONORED CLASS: More than one-fourth of the graduating seniors did so with honors, finishing with a weighted GPA of 4.0 or higher.
