High schools throughout rain-soaked and storm damaged Central Texas celebrated graduations Friday night - with more commencement ceremonies planned next week.

It was a close call, but Yoe seniors were able to walk the stage on Yoe Field Friday night. Skies cleared for a few hours late Friday afternoon and with the synthetic turf, the field was not muddy.

Milano commencement exercises were set in the MHS gym and Thorndale High School moved their graduation ceremonies to the Taylor ISD auditorium.
