On their way



Above, School Board Chairman Richard Matthews appears less than impressed as graduating senior James Ellis passed through the receiving line after getting his diploma Sunday, June 11, during commencement exercises for the South Portland High School Class of 2017. Ellis marched onto George E. Martin Memorial Field dressed like all his peers, but at some point before his name was called lost his shoes and swapped out the traditional mortarboard headdress for a multicolored cap. Right, Ruay Bol, one of 186 graduating seniors on the South Portland High School Class of 2017 flashes a peace out sign after accepting his diploma during commencement exercises. Far right, Brady Fitzgerald poses for a photo moments after receiving his diploma and a standing ovation from both his classmates and the crowd assembled Sunday.
