Placeholder Image
It was a record-setting year for Project Graduation, which gave students a safe environment to celebrate the achievement of a high school diploma.McMinnville Civic Center was overflowing with excitement as high school graduates and their guests partied deep into Friday night and well into Saturday morning.“I think I got out of there Saturday morning around 8 a.m.,” said Project Graduation chair Paula Wanamaker. “The kids had to stay until 4 a.m. or they forfeited their prizes. To my knowledge, no one checked out before 4 a.m.”Wanamaker said a record-setting fundraising year resulted in over $80,000 to be spent on the annual event, which she says is the most in its 30-year history.
