Allen High School graduates 33

May 16—Allen High School hosted commencement ceremonies Friday at the school's gym.

33 seniors received their diplomas.

Family and friends experienced a scary moment early in the evening when senior Riley Tomb fainted due to low blood sugar. Officials gave him food and water, and he was able to continue.

Tomb stood up and said to the crowd, "Sorry," which elicited laughter, then applause the same way sports fans applaud when an injured athlete leaves the field or court.

Despite the sudden anxiety of the moment, Tomb and his family and friends will have story to tell for the rest of their lives.
