   Bay City High School graduated about 230 students during its commencement ceremony at the new Memorial Stadium, Friday, May 28.
   Following a moving invocation by Haley Eidlebach and Lauren Montalvo leading the Pledge of Allegiance, a selection of senior choir members sang an acapella rendition of the “Star-Spangled Banner.”
   After that, Superintendent Dr. Marshall Scott, III had the top 10% of students stand to be recognized along with the top 10 students in the class.
   Salutatorian Ramira Castellano reminded her fellow graduates that the little things in life mattered more than most.
   “I’ll never forget the teachers that taught me or the memories I made,” she said.
   “High school made me realize it’s the little things that matter. Nothing lasts forever, and this goodbye is bittersweet.”
   She added that her class faced a lot of obstacles to make it to their graduation and that she was proud of them.
   “We survived Hurricane Harvey our freshman year, then a pandemic, then a freeze in February,” said Castellano.
