SHS Commencement

The football scoreboard proclaimed “2021,” and the Saluda High School class of 2021 took their chairs on Mathews Field at the Bettis Herlong Stadium .... then, like last year’s pandemic graduation, a storm came up during the ceremony, forcing the field to be cleared. Once the storm passed, the commencement was able to be completed. (Photos by Billie Ellis)
