CHANUTE — Talk of graduation — or a diploma — causes Rita Dillow to bubble with excitement. While holding the Humboldt High School diploma she will receive officially in a couple weeks, she looks at it occasionally, as if checking to be sure her name is printed there.

“All my life I have wanted to graduate from Humboldt High School,” Dillow said. “That’s been my goal ever since I can remember.”

Dillow, 61, grew up in Humboldt where she attended elementary and Zillah schools, then during her sixth-grade year, her family moved. Even after all these years, she still considers Humboldt as home.
