Lodi High's 'spunky' class graduates

Posted: Friday, May 30, 2008 10:00 pm

Thousands of friends, family and educators packed the Lodi Grape Bowl on Friday evening to watch the culmination of a 13-year-long journey for hundreds of Lodi High School seniors.

As the soon-to-be graduates donned in red and white robes marched in the stadium's back parking lot, members of the crowd burst into a roaring applause, signifying a job well done.

Not knowing where they're favorite grad might be, mothers and fathers scoured the sea of red and white in search of the fruits of 18 years of labor.

"What we have here before us tonight is truly the best that Lodi Unified School District has to offer," said Ken Davis, Lodi Unified's board president.

To kick off the ceremony, Davis gave the Class of 2008 a, perhaps unprecedented, four F's.

"We have not given them F's; otherwise they would not be here," Davis said.

He urged the graduates to keep family, friends, faith and fun close to their hearts as they begin the rest of their treks through life.

Senior Class President Andreana Rocha snubbed a more traditional oration in favor of a poem, in which she managed to mention Principal Bill Atterberry shaving his head four years ago, the loss of the Pigskin and Gingham dances, and hiding from campus supervisors who would lecture girls for the length of their shorts.

"The past four years you have been a spunky group," said Jackie Heinrich, the 2007 teacher of the year.

You need to upgrade your Flash Player This movie requires Flash Player 8 or greater.

Heinrich presented social science teacher and "one-woman-dynamo" Mishell Wolff with the 2008 teacher of the year award, which she won based on student votes.

Atterberry honored both valedictorian Megan Spencer and runner-up Megan Gritsch, whose race for the top seat came down to a thousandth of a grade point average point.

Spencer giggled a bit before reaching the microphone to give her speech.

"I'm just soaking it all in," she said.

Polished from her efforts on the speech and debate team, Spencer focused on the Class of 2008 - and all others present - imagining what they want to be and being it.

She honored fellow senior Michael Harrich, who will be attending the United States Military Academy at West Point, and all of her peers going into the military, as well as Lodi High's many engineering students and the first-generation Americans who Friday night became first-generation American high school graduates.

A wind-whipped Spencer had to pause as a gust nearly flew away with her speech.

She recovered to give a last piece of advice to her class.

"I want nothing more in the whole world than for you to be happy. That's what it's all about," she said.

Pods with in the crowd erupted in applause and cheers as Atterberry called out each of the graduates names.

Some grads ran to give their favorite teachers a hug. Others shook their fists in the air as if to say, "Yes, I did it."

Still others mugged for the camera, their first pictures as high school graduates.

After the stack of diplomas were dispersed throughout the grads, Atterberry instructed the former high school students to place their tassels on the other side of their caps, and proclaimed them all graduates of Lodi High.

The graduates finished the ceremony by shaping their hands into L's as they belted out their alma mater.

After the ceremony, Jordan Whitley searched the field, looking for someone to hug.

Upon finding his friends, he leapt into the air to bump chests with them.

"It's a good feeling," he said about the night.

Jorge Zamora stood silently, just grinning from ear to ear.

"I never thought it would come," he said. "It's finally here."

And two-time national rodeo champion and graduate Cody Hedland mixed with the friends and relatives there to congratulate him.

Craig Evans, father of twins Jason and Ryan Evans, reflected on the years that just seemed to move way too quickly.

"It seemed like yesterday they were in kindergarten," he said.

And graduate Katie Warmerdam just smiled, thankful that she completed all her requirements.

"It's been an interesting journey," said Al Warmerdam, Katie's father.

Interesting, he said, but very successful nonetheless.

A lot of kudos to Mrs Becky Jaurgi (wrong.. it escapes me now) on all of the scholarships these fine students earned. Your hard work does not go unnoticed.GO FLAMES!!!!!!

Should graduations return to the Grape Bowl?

Lodi Unified leaders are moving Lodi and Tokay high school graduations from the Grape Bowl to the Spanos Center at UOP in Stockton. They cite limited seating, costs and unpredictable weather at the Grape Bowl. But others say graduations at the Grape Bowl are an important Lodi tradition, and one reason many supported renovating the stadium. What do you think?
