Their caps and gowns are pressed and ready to wear. They've practiced the walk, the handshake, accepting of their diplomas, and smiling for Mom and Dad's cameras.
Now, all that's left is to wait for the clock, and for tonight's festivities to get underway.
Students from and high schools will be walking the stage for their respective graduation ceremonies Friday evening for the Class of 2012, and Patch wanted to take a moment to congratulate all the hard-working and deserving graduates.
Let's all wish them success!
