Armstrong grads dress for success

Pleasant Valley Secondary Class of 2019 gathers for official photos at scorching Memorial Park

They waited so long to look fabulous in their grad finest.

Yet 30-plus-degree temperatures had Armstrong’s Pleasant Valley Secondary School’s Class of 2019 wanting to get out of their suits and dresses ASAP.

Grads gathered in Memorial Park Monday for the school’s annual tradition of photos for parents and friends, followed by the official grad class picture. A lot of pictures were taken in the sanctity of shade from the park’s trees.

While there may have been some complaints about the weather, the grads carried on and happily posed for countless photos, looking sharp in their outfits.
