Eastern High graduation does not go smoothly


What happens when you pass out more tickets than there are seats to a high school graduation? Some incredibly cheesed-off friends and family. Eastern High School's graduation ceremony was held at the Elstad Auditorium at Gallaudet University and, much to the disgust of many in attendance, the school had given out tickets to more people than the auditorium holds.
"You can't even see your child graduate and this is the outcome," said Alvin Williams. "It's ridiculous. They should not have had this here. They should have had it at a location that could accommodate every parent that came out here. This is ridiculous."

"My mother was almost arrested because she tried to get inside the building," said graduate Brittney Wright. "They threatened to arrest her."
