A clatter of voices twisted around the New Life Christian School gymnasium Saturday afternoon as teenagers slouched beside their parents, fiddling with pamphlets, and families leaned over chairs to chat with one another, eyes shining above their masks.

But when “Pomp and Circumstance” thundered from the speakers, a hush fell over the room. Everyone seemed to sit up a bit straighter, as parents whipped out their cell phones, prepping for the big moment. Then, the doors cracked open and the procession began.
