It was a day of celebration and accomplishment at George Lane Park.
The Highwood High school welcomed 120 new graduates to take the stage this year on Friday June 29.
The ceremony kicked off at noon, where the graduates were accompanied by their friends and family.
New graduate Cole Voeller says this year marked a new custom for the ceremony "we are starting a new tradition where grads walk from the Highwood Museum to George Lane Park."
The new grads celebrated their achievements by attending a banquet in the evening.
