A total of 321 seniors received their diplomas, officially saying farewell to high school and preparing for college, the workforce and the military.

After four years of high school, the seniors - dressed in blue and white graduation gowns - are now much more than just students and graduates, according to Matthew Correia, salutatorian.
"It is today that we move on to the real world. In many ways, this is a scary thought," said Correia.
There will be falls along the way and discouraging moments throughout the journey, said Petrigno. "But each time, pick yourself up and always give your best," he said.
