MEDINA – The top 16 girls ranked academically in the junior class and the top two boys finished the 56-foot-long Daisy Chain this afternoon. The graduation tradition goes back more than a century in Medina.

Students worked on assembling the daisy chain today in the cafeteria of the high school. The students will bring in the Daisy Chain to lead off commencement at 7 p.m. later today at Vets Park.
