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.

Congratulations to all the 2022 graduates, and best of luck one in your future endeavors.
