After 12 years, the moment has come at last.
Twelve years of school have led to this week, when all the graduating seniors of the Class of 2012 don their robes and march across the stage.
When they get to the other side after Saturday’s ceremony, they will be officially embarked on a new phase in life.
Some students will be relieved it is over. Others may look back on their experience at Benicia High School with fond memories — while looking toward the future with excitement.
