Baby Jessica, High School Grad

From MyWestTexas comes the report that, with no fanfare, Jessica McClure graduated from Greenwood High School.

There were no television crews on hand to capture the event. There were no screaming throngs of well-wishers gathered to watch McClure march onto the floor of Midland College’s Chaparral Center Friday evening, her brown hair flowing from beneath a baby blue mortar board, a Gerber daisy clutched in her hands.

When she crossed the stage to shake hands with Greenwood Independent School District board of trustees President Price Robinson a little later, there was little to set McClure apart from the 112 robed GHS seniors receiving a diploma that night.

And that may be appropriate.

The article points out that the family has deliberately shunned publicity, and that the former Baby Jessica has no memory of the event, which is a blessing.

Many congratulations to her.
