PARKLAND, FL - The Marjory Stoneman Douglas Class of 2018 graduated on Sunday at BB&T Center in Sunrise, Florida.  Many graduates paid homage to those lost on February 14.

Assistant Principal Maximo Rosario was the Master of Ceremonies.  School board member Abby Freedman and MSD Principal Ty Thomspon presented the diplomas to the graduating class.  Surprise special guest Jimmy Fallon, host of NBC's "The Tonight Show," addressed the graduates.  He said, "The first thing is this: when something feels hard, remember that it gets better. Choose to move forward. Don't let anything stop you."

Mayor Christine Hunschofsky said, "Congratulations to the Marjory Stoneman Douglas Class of 2018 on your graduation. We are so proud of you and wish you all the best in your future endeavors. Our hearts are heavy thinking of your classmates who were taken and will not be able to walk the stage with you. Our thoughts are with their families on this difficult day."
