Herbert Hoover High School recently held a graduation ceremony for its Class of 2022 on Ferguson Field.
A music-packed opening kicked off the special occasion with performances by the Herbert Hoover jazz band, Hoover string orchestra and Principal’s Own Orchestra Band, all conducted by Dylan Koester.
Bryan Hong then led the Pledge of Allegiance and military service recognition, while the Hoover chamber singers sang the “Star-Spangled Banner” and the Sound of Hoover performed Peter Schmutte’s “I’ll Be There for You,” under the direction of Amy Estep.
Hoover Principal Jennifer Earl greeted attendees, followed by thoughtful reflections by students about their high school experiences.
The past four years led students to the moment of officially being presented to their families and friends as the Class of 2022. Soon after, they walked the stage to receive their hard-earned diplomas.
