Summer vacation is underway for more than 300 Ithaca High School graduates, who finished up their time in Ithaca schools and earned their diplomas Thursday night.
Graduates heard from Ithaca Mayor Svante Myrick, who told them to live the lives they love.
Many graduates said they had plans to attend college next year, but also had fond memories of IHS.
“I’m proud to be a graduate of IHS, and I’ve been looking forward to this moment,” said one grad. “It’s really rewarding.”
“All the teachers and faculty, and all the students there are all supportive, and there’s so many options at IHS,” said another graduate. “It’s just a great school to go to.”
The ceremony was held at Ithaca College’s Athletics and Events Center.
