I was skeptical when I learned my daughter's high school graduation was going to be at the South Florida Fairgrounds. I pictured the South Florida Fair and its rides, crowds and live animals.
But I saw how wrong I was after attending her graduation yesterday at the fairgrounds' Expo Center. The center was clean, well air conditioned, had a good sound system and a good parking plan. It easily sat the few thousand people in attendance and there was no panic over who was going to get the best seats.
The Palm Beach County School District moved graduations to the fairgrounds this year from the Palm Beach County Convention Center to save $100,000. I have to congratulate the district for doing something right.
