FAIRFIELD — Savelle Jefferson lists graduating middle school, getting a driver’s license and turning 18 so you “could finally go to the club” as milestones of adolescence.
On Friday, he came across another at George A. Gammon Field at Vanden High School.
“That moment is graduation, where we make the transition from childhood to adulthood,” said Jefferson, the senior class president.
Some 360 Vanden seniors dressed in gold and green gowns made that transition Friday night, walking across the stage for the final moment of their high school experience. Of the Class of 2012, there were 74 students who graduated with honors, seven valedictorians and one salutatorian.
