Philosophy and literature teacher Matthew Dominguez high-fives every hand before the Wheaton Academy graduation at Wheaton Bible Church in West Chicago. The former Wheaton Academy graduate has made this a tradition for the last 18 years.I took pictures at 9 graduations this year and this was the most interesting, out-of-the-ordinary scene that I saw.
