On Thursday, June 7, 530 Helix Highlanders, donning caps and gowns, crossed the stage and accepted their diplomas, completing their four years of high school.

The stands were overflowing with friends and family members cheering for their favorite graduate. Class valedictorians Matthew Goldman, Benjamin Lam, Anderson Lam, and Taylor Zachary each addressed their classmates, giving advice, reliving memories, and expressing their hopes for the future. After accepting their diplomas, graduates passed through an aisle lined by their teachers and other staff members passing along their congratulations.

The Helix staff wishes the class of 2018 all the best as they pursue bright futures. Enjoy these images of the Helix graduation celebration!
