What is happening in the photo?

Abigail’s paternal grandmother, Loretta, at her 8th Grade graduation. She is around 14 years old here. Loretta had started to go on to High School but had to stop when her father died in tragic circumstances. He was murdered in 1926 (or 1930?), and this had a strong effect on her. Though she got married and had 12 surviving children, Loretta would be in and out of hospitals for the rest of her life.
