The graduation ceremony of Vallejo’s Jesse Bethel High School class of 2019, held at Vallejo High School’s Corbus Field on Thursday, differed in a couple of unusual ways from the typical such event. For one thing, the Valedictorian’s speech hit some seriously political notes, not to mention the Valedictorian herself was the school’s first Latina woman to earn the honor. But also, the class included two people tied to tragedies that shone an unfortunate spotlight on the city of Vallejo some 50 years apart. James Pinson’s daughter Pearl Pinson would have walked the stage Thursday had she not been kidnapped on her way to school three years ago. She has not been found. Her sister Rose accepted her diploma on Pearl’s behalf. “It’s real emotional to see my daughter’s name in the program, and keep looking for her, and she’s not here,” James Pinson said. “But, I feel she’s here with us in spirit.” A photo of Pearl Pinson sits in an empty chair to remember the missing teen. Pearl’s sister Rose accepted her diploma during the Bethel High School graduation on Thursday at Corbus Field in Vallejo. (Chris Riley–Times-Herald) Also graduating Thursday was Morghan Shiner, whose grandmother Melody Jensen Long graduated from Hogan in 1962. Jensen Long, who drove some two hours from her home in Pollock Pines to see her granddaughter graduate, is also the sister of Betty Lou Jensen, the first known Zodiac victim in the area. “I’d have liked to see her graduate, but she never made it,” Jensen Long said. Most of the capacity crowd that filled the stands were well-wishers with only happy congratulations on their minds. Andrew Mattos’ grandmother Georgia Bettencourt’s, was among those. “He’s my first grandchild to graduate,” she said. “He did very well in school, making As and Bs, and he’s going to Sacramento State after he graduates. We’re very proud of him.” Heena Bharti’s sister Devya Bharti also graduated Thursday. “She’s moving on,” Heena Bharti said. “We’re all very happy.” The girls’ mother Kiran Bala and their grandparents were all at Thursday’s ceremony to see the first in their family to graduate from high school since they arrived here from India. A cheer rose from the crowd as the Jesse Bethel High School Band struck up Pomp and Circumstance, and a sea of black and gold caps and gowns snaked its way from the gym to the field and took their seats facing the stage holding Vallejo City Unified School District trustees and other dignitaries. Colors were presented by the Bethel NJROTC, followed by the Pledge of Allegiance led by Senior Class Vice President Michelle Maligat, and the National Anthem sung by Roselene Gabun. Following a welcome by JSB President Brandon Bautista, a moment of silence was had for those who couldn’t be there, which, besides Pinson, included teacher Ricardo Henley and student Chad Santamaria. Bautista said his class had many achievements to celebrate and that he’s sure they will become wonderful nurses, doctors, lawyers, engineers “and maybe presidents,” as long as they continued to “believe in your abilities.” The senior class officers announced the class gift, which is a bench in Henley’s honor. Salutatorian Kayle Ann Lim, thanked her family and everyone else who supported her to this point. She noted the loss of several important people in her life during her high school years, including Santamaria, who had been a good friend, and who offered her words of encouragement before he died. She spoke of the obstacles she overcame including health and self-esteem issues, and said she came away with the life lesson that some things are inevitable, and the best thing to do is to “go as fast as you can, get it over and move on.” She offered congratulations to the entire class of 2019, and added that, “as Mr. Henley always said, let’s keep this train moving.” Valedictorian Natalie Alexia Ramos also made thank-yous, but included those “who didn’t believe in me and didn’t think I should be standing before you today,” because they motivated her to excel. Ramos advised that when they run into people who put Vallejo down, class members should remember the words of former First Lady Michelle Obama, who said, “When they go low, we go high.” [related_articles location=”left” show_article_date=”false” article_type=”automatic-primary-section”] Ramos said that though the United States “was built on racist institutions,” these can be dismantled and rebuilt, and that her classmates’ dreams are achievable, in any case. “You can do it, because you’ve got people you have to prove wrong, and because you have the ability,” she said. “The sky’s no longer the limit. Now we can reach for the stars.” Julius Teixeira celebrates after getting his diploma during the Bethel High School graduation on Thursday at Corbus Field in Vallejo. (Chris Riley–Times-Herald) Ramos said she dedicated her Valedictorianship to every one, in every disenfranchised group, including “every black or brown person wrongly incarcerated,” and also to her ancestors, “whose land was stolen from them, and my grandparents who crossed the border without papers to make a better life.” Other speakers included Nicole Anderson, Jesse Bethel’s granddaughter, and Vallejo school district superintendent Adam Clark, who encouraged class members to one day “come back and serve your community. Don’t stand on the sidelines, pointing fingers if you’re not willing to jump in with both feet and pitch in.” Also, Principal Ramon Cusi, who encouraged the 346 graduates of the class of 2019, to remember that “good things are happening in the City of Vallejo, and its our time to make them better. Reach for the stars, Jaguars.”
