McKinney, Texas 鈥撀燨n Friday, May 24, 2024, 国产精品 held commencement exercises for approximately 1,800 seniors from McKinney Boyd High School, McKinney High School and McKinney North High School at the Credit Union of Texas Event Center in Allen during a day filled with celebration.

It was an early start for Boyd staff and their 600 graduates as they arrived for their 9 a.m. ceremony, and when the long awaited moment arrived, they marched onto the floor of the arena, resplendent in their crimson regalia, and soon they were crossing the stage to receive their diplomas.

At 1 p.m., more than 600 McKinney High School graduates made their entrance in robes of deep blue, accented by brilliant gold stoles amid a roar of adulation from the family and friends who filled the arena to witness the joyful occasion.

And, for the final ceremony of the day, the 500-plus graduates of McKinney North flooded into the arena in their striking blue and orange regalia to the familiar strains of “Pomp and Circumstance” as family and friends looked on, heartily voicing their approval.

Here are the 2024 McKinney Boyd High School, McKinney High School and McKinney North High School graduation ceremonies in photos:
