McKinney, Texas – As McKinney Boyd High School senior Jeremy Zangenberg strode across the graduation stage on the morning of Friday, May 21, the Allen Event Center burst forth into thunderous celebration.

The final 2021 Boyd graduate to cross the stage, Zangenberg met Dr. Jennifer Peirson at the far side and stopped for a photo with his principal. Looking into the camera, he grinned and lifted a clinched fist, and Peirson followed suit as the rising wave of cheers and applause crashed over the arena.

The joyful exuberance in their pose spoke volumes. There were still the school song to be sung and parting thoughts from the podium and caps to be flung into the air, but honestly, Peirson and Zangenberg had said it all, without speaking a word:

They had done it. They had completed the journey of the 2020–2021 school year.

The commencement exercises for McKinney High School and McKinney North High School would follow at 1 p.m. and 5:30 p.m., marked by the same air of celebration, each audience sounding forth with its own joyful roar of applause as their graduates—resplendent in blue and yellow and orange—filed onto the floor of the arena and made their way eventually, one by one, across the stage to receive their diplomas.

Through a school year like no other, the seniors from Boyd, MHS and North had persevered and now had come to the conclusion of their 13-year sojourn from kindergarten to graduation.

And, when North’s Emily Young, the final graduate of the day, crossed the stage on Friday evening, she turned toward her fellow graduates with a wide smile, raised her diploma triumphantly in the air, and closed the books on the 2020–2021 school year.

And, to the graduates of McKinney Boyd, MHS and McKinney North, we say, “Well done!”
