Viewfinder: Enumclaw Class of 2012 Graduation

Commencement for the Class of 2012 took place at White River Amphitheatre on Monday.

This year's graduating class held a special place in principal Jill Burnes' heart as they were entering freshmen during her first year as principal of the school. Similarly, superintendent Mike Nelson reminded the class they were entering kindergarteners when he first began working in the Enumclaw School District 13 years ago.

Class speaker Jacob Kokko told his classmates, "Tonight, we are high school graduates. Tomorrow, we will be adults taking our first few steps into the rest of our lives."

Check out some sights and sounds we collected from Monday night in the accompanying slideshow: the audio is provided by the high school concert choir singing My Chemical Romance's "Sing" and seniors Reece Menzel and Dakotah Maxwell with Green Day's "Good Riddance (Time of your Life)."
