A joyous occasion, tinged with sadness

South Boston NewsSouth Boston NewsSouth Boston NewsSouth Boston NewsSouth Boston News
At graduation ceremonies Saturday at Bluestone and Park View High Schools, the exultation of finishing one’s high school career was mixed with a sense of loss for those who have passed before their time. Top, at Bluestone, Wilma Smith, mother of the late Evan Ashad “Meek” Smith, came to the stage to receive his diploma. Smith was murdered earlier this year in Chase City, cutting short the life of a young man who was an avid hunter, angler and outdoors enthusiast. PVHS Principal Wesley Swain presents a diploma in memory of Briana Hope Bugg, who died in a North Carolina highway crash in which the driver of the other vehicle has been charged with DUI and second degree murder. Receiving Briana’s diploma were members of her family, sister Meghann Whitney Bugg, mother Tracy Bugg and her father, Glenn Bugg. Park View students wore purple ribbons in remembrance of the popular student-athlete. Bluestone’s valedictorian, Michael Paul Smith Jr., gives his graduation address. At Park View, Reid Piercy delivered the valedictorian’s speech. (Steve Hinzman photos)
