The first breath came in the 90-degree heat after Brookings-Harbor School District Superintendent Brian Hodge declared the group high school graduates. At that point, the graduates released Silly String and threw their mortar-board caps into the air in celebration. This was followed by families and friends coming down to offer congratulations and hugs.
