The Graduate

Published June 13, 2003 / by Steve Berentson

High school graduation night — one of the sweetest traditions in American culture — took place in this community Friday, June 13 for the Anacortes High School Class of 2003. It was time for the photographer to hand off his camera temporarily as he posed proudly with son Mark. Special moments for hundreds of Anacortes families. See Activities section for more AHS graduation photographs…

About Steve Berentson
A fourth generation Skagit County native who was moved kicking and screaming from this island community in 1960. I finally reclaimed an Anacortes address in 1980, and I have been in constant celebration of my return since that time. Many of us who call Anacortes home love Fidalgo Island for its natural assets: among them are rugged beaches, pristine lakes, thousands of acres of forestland and some awesome views of the Skagit Valley and surrounding islands. Another element of my love affair with this community is its people, both natives and immigrants. They will “star” in many of my journal entries.
