The first graduating class of Vance County High School received diplomas Saturday morning during the Commencement Exercise.
The event was held in the gymnasium at Vance County Middle School, the same facility that hosted the last countywide graduation in 1990. The spring of 1990 saw the final graduating class of Vance Sr. High.
A total of 251 VCHS seniors received diplomas.
Principal Rey Horner presided over the ceremony. Laura Care was the class valedictorian and Tomesha Jefferson was salutatorian.
An audience of approximately 1,250 parents, family, friends and school system officials attended to celebrate the class members’ achievements.
