It’s a shame a handful of individuals rewrote Hermiston High School history by altering the 2018 commencement.

They decided to move the ceremony out of state in another city.

With all the property they gained from the vacant fairgrounds they could have housed a ceremony with more than ample parking.

Imagine being educated in Hermiston but now your special day others decided to move it out of state. Talk about an inconvenience.

Boycott your graduation — boycott. The high school still has to give you your diploma. Hold your own ceremony in Hermiston.

Shame on the individuals who came up with this plan. It’s obvious they weren’t thinking and probably most are not Hermiston alums.
