Congratulations, high-school graduates: The big day you’ve been waiting for so long has arrived.
In just a few days, you’ll take those anticipated steps onto a stage and claim that diploma. You’ll also take a giant step toward adulthood.
Amid the congratulations and cards, weekend barbecues and cookouts, take time over the next few days to thank the people who have made the big day possible.
