One by one, graduates from schools throughout the region walked across the stage and collected their diplomas as the seniors at Fairfield High School watched and waited.
As one of the final schools in the area to graduate Friday night, the Falcons graduates would like to say they saved the best for last.
Principal Will Cushman suggested the Class of 2018 was saving the best for what’s next.
“Whatever path you choose, I promise you this won’t be the biggest moment of your life,” Cushman said, acknowledging the cliches that often highlight a high school graduation. “This is one great moment out of many, many great moments that life holds for you.”
