The gowns were zipped.
The tassels checked.
The list of names gone over once and again and again and again.
And then, when the 2016 commencement ceremonies at Tigard, Tualatin, Sherwood, Horizon Christian, Westside Christian, the Durham Education Center and the Tigard-Tualatin Online Academy were complete, graduates tossed their caps into the air and began the next phases in their lives.
To celebrate, we offer this slideshow created by the photographers at The Times.
