And that’s a wrap, class of 2024: a roundup of OC graduation pictures from social media

Students throughout Orange County will soon start the next chapter of their lives as they receive their high school diplomas. 

It’s easy to forget just how busy a high school student’s life can get. By juggling school, extracurricular activities and social events, the class of 2024 overcame all odds. They were, in fact, the only class to start their freshman year during a global pandemic. Showing great resilience, they have since grown and matured academically, socially and emotionally.

Family and friends are now gathering to celebrate these students and will continue to do so throughout June, with schools and districts documenting their commencements on social media. Here’s a glimpse of some of the ceremonies so far. Check back for more to come.
