Inside the air-conditioned comfort of George C. Crawford Auditorium, the Pioneer High School Class of 2021 enjoyed its last hurrah before an adoring crowd of families and friends.
Commencement was held Saturday, June 26. Plans for a ceremony on the Memorial Field were scrapped when the state loosened Covid-19 guidelines for large gatherings.
