High school graduations in Whatcom County started Thursday, June 6, with commencement ceremonies for Lynden Christian and Lummi Nation schools.
The list of graduates from each school, along with valedictorians and other ceremony information, is online at our Graduations page. Look for graduate lists from other high schools to be added in the coming days.
Photo galleries from most graduation ceremonies will be posted online the night of the ceremonies, and photographs will be published in the newspaper as well.
Some of the best photos come from family and friends. If you attend a ceremony, consider adding your photographs to our online galleries to share with other readers. Go to bellinghamherald.com/reader-news-photos. At the bottom you'll find a form to enter caption information and upload the photo.
