Hannah Smith brought her trumpet along on Thursday’s Grand Haven High School graduation parade, because being in band has been such a huge part of her high school career.

She wasn’t planning on playing her instrument, but when she saw all the people standing along the parade route, she said she couldn’t resist belting out the Grand Haven fight song.

The GHHS car parade was phenomenal is so many ways: it gave the seniors a much needed graduation for seeing all their friends at school one last time and for closure for their many years in school; it allowed the community to band together to celebrate the seniors' milestone, and it allowed their families and friends to cheer for them and show them how proud we are of their accomplishments. It would have been terribly sad if nothing had been done for them to show our support. The whole parade was so much fun, I hope it becomes an annual tradition.
