CHICO, Calif. - It is graduation night for high schoolers in Chico, at both Chico High School and Pleasant Valley High. At Chico High more than 400 seniors will be getting their diplomas tonight. Today was the big rehearsal.
Senior Class member Elyana Croninger said, "It's really exciting, but at the same time it doesn't feel real. I've been with all these kids since junior high. I honestly didn't see this coming up this fast."
This will be the first graduation ceremony held in the high school's brand new five million dollar stadium.
Another 400 seniors will be graduating from Pleasant Valley High School tonight (thursday) night.They also held a rehearsal today.
Senior Class President Tia Nevarez will give a speech tonight.
She said she will be talking about "days."
"So how many days since when we were born in kindergarten and sat together in high school. And I'm really emphasizing how I want people to make their days count and be happy and wherever they end up, they're happy and they're making their days matter," Nevarez continued.
Both Pleasant Valley and Chico High graduation ceremonies get underway at 8:00 p.m. We will have coverage of both ceremonies tonight on Action News Now at 10 and 11 p.m.
