Beach High School graduation

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - It was a big night for some very deserving seniors.

The Beach High School class of 2009 made their way into the Savannah Civic Center for the school's annual commencement ceremonies. Family and friends watched as their students walked off the stage as high school graduates. For many today's ceremony is a celebration of their journey through education.

"Freedom. Freedom. We've been at it for four years, studying, and working hard, and it's just really important. This is a one true moment in life that you won't ever forget," said graduate Caleb Person.

Next these graduates will begin their adult life, some by going off to college, the military, or even joining the work force.
