As the 700 members of the Crescenta Valley High School senior class lined up Thursday at Stengel Field to receive their diplomas, the memories started flying.
Some pertained to academic accomplishments.
“I had one of the hardest English teachers in the whole school, and I got an A in the class,” Stephanie Castricone, 18, said. “I had to read over and over and over again what she assigned us. When we had a 10-page research paper due, I revised it for two weeks straight.”
Others, not so much.
“I think my favorite high school memory was one day at snack we had a huge water bottle fight,” Wyatt Van Dyck, 18, said. “There were water bottles flying left and right all over our main quad….They tried to stop us, but there were like 3,000 kids versus 10 administrators so they really couldn’t do anything.”
But once the reminiscing was done, the graduates said they were ready to focus on futures filled with college, work and family.
