Despite a couple of early rain drops, Havelock High seniors paraded in front of family and friends, walking across the stage to receive diplomas during a celebratory commencement on Saturday at Havelock High.

Number of graduates: 247

Valedictorian: Katie Murphy

Quote from the Valedictorian: "I know some of you are ready to jump up from your seats and sing the Hallelujah chorus at the top your lungs. There's probably some parents thinking the exact same thing."

Salutatorian: Selena Li

Quote from the Salutatorian: "I know it feels like we are leaving and saying goodbye, but we will always carry a piece of each other and will forever stay a Havelock Ram."

Of note: Two sets of twins graduated from Havelock High — Timothy and Titus Horton, and Paulina and Paola Sanchez. Valedictorian Katie Murphy is the daughter of Havelock High choral director Missy Murphy and Havelock High Princpal Jeff Murphy. She concluded her speech with a familiar phrase her father often uses to end his school announcements. "Thank you, and that is all."
