With multicolored cap and gowns as different and unique as each of its wearers, the Bitney College Prep graduates smiled as they moved their tassels from one side of their caps to the other signifying the closing of this chapter in their lives, and the beginning of the next during Friday’s commencement ceremony at the Grass Valley Elks Lodge.
