To Kendall, with love

Kim Pickering gets a hug from Hinsdale Central Principal Bill Walsh as her daughter, Taylor, holds the honorary diploma awarded to her sister, Kendall. The graduates and crowd at Dickinson Field came to their feet as Kendall's name was called and applauded for several minutes during Central's graduation Thursday night. Kendall was killed in a car accident while visiting colleges during her sophomore year in December 2020. A standout swimmer, she still holds many records on the Central girls swim team that she earned her freshman year. (Jim Slonoff photos)
