The Blue Ridge High School Class of 2016 held its commencement exercises at Furman University’s Timmons Arena Thursday. About 300 grads were presented diplomas. See names below.

Principal Alleson Jean Lynn had arguably the best idea to allow family and friends to cheer the graduates before the individual names were called.

Lynn’s “celebration” allowed 30-45 seconds for those attending the ceremonies to cheer and clap loudly to honor the grads as they turned to face their guests.

It worked. Every graduate’s name could be heard clearly during the ceremony.
