Here in San Lucas, the graduation of a son or daughter is a major event - be it from grade school, junior high school or high school.
Many parents never went to school, or only got as far as third grade - so to have a son or daughter graduate is a dream come true.
The top students in the class that is graduating have the privilege of carrying the national and school flags. The best student in each class is in the flag party - a big honor.
It's always wonderful to see many sponsored students in the graduations, carrying the flags or in the flag party.
