LA VISTA/PAPILLION – Seniors from Papillion La Vista High School and Papillion La Vista South High School spent their week in nervous and excited anticipation for Sunday’s graduation ceremonies at Omaha’s Baxter Arena.
When the moment came to move the tassels, there was relief, joy and pictures. Lots and lots of pictures. The Papillion Times asked families and friends to capture all the moments of the day, and we have a full mailbox of photos.
Congratulations to all the 2022 graduates, and best of luck one in your future endeavors.
