Although the rain quickly intensified, James Washington vowed to remain in his seat until Keonna Wilson’s name was called.
Washington said he’s proud of his sister and wasn’t going to let a little precipitation stop him from seeing her walk across the stage.
“I’m not leaving,” Washington said, as he opened his umbrella and braced himself for the rainfall.
His sister was one of nearly 400 students who graduated Friday from Lancaster High School. The ceremony was held at Lancaster Memorial Stadium.
