  10. It was a fun night but graduating over 400 took a lot of time. I enjoyed the graduates and speakers but the theatre full of family/friends was new to me. A very unruly group. Once we were seated people kept getting up and going back and forth in front of us. One girl did it 4 times. I finally asked her if she was done. The school brass ensemble did the into music and people talked and walked all the way through it. If I had been the director, I would have been very discouraged. Imagine how many times they had to play pomp and Circumstances to get all 400+ into their seats....I must be an older generation who learned manners and respect.
