PHOTOS: Parkland Secondary does grad photo op in Sidney

Excited Parkland Secondary graduates filled Sidney’s Beacon Park on Wednesday, June 28 for the annual photo opportunity with family.

Some dads could be heard whining about the amount of photos being taken, while others were behind the camera trying to get the best lighting. Mothers were seen jumping into photos with their grads and friends were there to hold flowers, purses, balloons or whatever else was needed.

The excitement was felt throughout the park as the graduating students embark on their next steps beyond highschool.
