The Santa Maria High School Class of 2023 accomplished a lot, Principal Steve Campbell said in his opening remarks at the school's 130th commencement ceremony Thursday.

"This year, we had more students admitted into Cal State universities than in any other in school history," Campbell told graduates and an overflow crowd at Ralph Baldiviez Stadium on the Santa Maria campus.
