Fayetteville High School Graduation 2012

Fayetteville High School held its commencement exercises Thursday, May 17, 2012, for the class of 2012 in Bud Walton Arena, graduating an estimated 571 seniors.

Covering graduations is always difficult because of how short the time is before the ceremony starts. The more interesting photos come as students prepare for the ceremony, but the light is terrible in the television tunnel at Bud Walton Arena and the time is short before they file out into the arena. One can only hope that something interesting happens as the kids are waiting to walk to their seats.
