It was a special night for seniors at Northeast Lauderdale High School as they received their diplomas at a ceremony at the Temple Theatre.
It was a bittersweet evening as a Northeast student who passed away during the school year was remembered.
As a part of the program, Tyler Matos was remembered with a chair on the stage with the rest of the students.
Matos was one of three teenagers who died in a car wreck in the Dalewood area in February.
Also part of the commencement ceremony, speeches from Northeast Valedictorians Lauren McElroy and Shelby Bowden.
