Raton High Graduation Friday Night

Raton High School graduated just over 70 students Friday night at Tiger Gym to a packed house. 

67 RHS students received some 189 scholarships totaling over $851,837 this year according to RHS Counselor Lynette Simpson. 

One of the reasons graduation was once again moved to Tiger Gym was the threat of rain, which came a little less than half way through the ceremony.
