The 2017 class is Allen’s largest ever to graduate with 1,551 students.
Getting everyone across the stage wasn’t easy. What was originally scheduled for Friday night was moved to Saturday afternoon after 2 delays due to weather conditions. The stands at the Allen football stadium were nearly full with 11,000 family friend according to WFAA. The last minute changes did cause some families to leave before the ceremony and cancel parties. The ceremony lasted about 2 and half hours with 10 pages worth of names to call out.
