More than a thousand spectators filled the stands of Memorial Field Thursday night to cheer not for a game, but for John Burroughs High School students clearing the final hurdle.

Brett Rackie found his niche quickly. He moved to town from Pittsburgh as a sophomore, knowing no one and enrolling at Burroughs High School. He joined the baseball team and made friends. On Thursday, he stood in the hallway of his soon-to-be alma mater, adorned with academic achievement pins, and honor chords all while hugging and high-fiving friends. “High school couldn’t have been better,” he said. “But I am looking forward to a new start.” Rackie’s story was among the successes of the roughly 600 students who, with a shift of their tassels, became alumnae Thursday night.
