Pictures: West Point High School Graduation
West Point High School held its commencement ceremony on Friday, June 14, at Warhill High School in Williamsburg. Aside from the Class of 2013's 54 graduates earning their diplomas, two seniors also earned associate degrees from Rappahannock Community College through the new Pointer Pathway Program. West Point's special guest that evening was famed WWII veteran Edward "Babe" Heffron, who, at 90 years-old, was awarded an honorary diploma from the Virginia Department of Education. Heffron is a former private with Easy Company, 2nd Battalion, 506th Parachute Infantry Regiment, in the 101st Airborne Division of the United States Army during World War II. Heffron was portrayed in the HBO miniseries Band of Brothers.
