Today, hundreds of area high school seniors will don gowns and mortarboards with tassels, walk across a stage and receive the diploma they’ve worked toward for 13 years.
It’s a day of celebration and relief for many students as they officially end their high school days and set off for either college, a trade school or the working world.
In my seven years working at The Dickinson Press, I had the pleasure of meeting several of the area’s youth through my prior experiences as sports editor.
This year’s senior class was going into the sixth grade when I first began to meet them.
My, how time flies.
