Graduation is a time for happiness and excitement. It signifies a new beginning for many. 

“High school is finally coming to an end. I will soon be able to experience college life and all the opportunities it has to offer me which is something I have really looked forward to,” said Imtiaz Chowdhury.

Graduation in a sense is a feeling of accomplishment and triumph for many. Students overcame challenges and could achieve important things.

“Spending four years at Edison wasn’t easy. Trying to achieve good grades while engaging in extracurricular activities is hard to balance but I was able to do it and I feel really proud of myself,” said Chowdhury. 

While graduation is a time for happiness, it’s also a time of sadness for others. A lot of the the people you will meet will most likely never see you again.

“I’ve met a lot of great people and I truly appreciate every single one of them. It makes me a bit sad knowing that I probably won’t see most of them ever again but I wish them the very best,” said Maheshwar Ramanand.

For some seniors it might not be the final time they set foot in Edison. They may want to revisit familiar faces and perhaps pursue a career in teaching.

“Once graduation happens I am fairly certain I will be back in Edison visiting some of my teachers since I am very grateful for everything they have taught me and I might follow their footsteps,” said Ethan Rahim.

Highschool graduation is a one of a kind experience. You only get to experience this once and it’s important to cherish every moment before eventually it all becomes a distant memory.
