Part one of East High School graduation takes place Wednesday

VICTORIA, Texas — VISD’s in-person graduation ceremonies continued on Wednesday, with part one of East High School’s commencement taking place at Memorial Stadium.

Graduating seniors from East with last names beginning in A through L walked across a stage at Memorial Stadium to receive their diplomas and pose for photos. Roughly 400 students are graduating from both East and West High School in 2020, meaning about 200 students will walk each day in the abbreviated ceremonies.

“This is a class that’s not going to be remembered because of COVID but for their resilience and their true Titan character that they exhibited through this whole process,” said East principal Justin Gabrysch before the ceremony.

On Thursday, East High School’s graduation will continue with students whose last names begin in M through Z. Liberty Academy’s graduation ceremony will take place on Friday.
