Families Celebrate Their 2023 Seniors


Graduation from high school is often the first big step toward adulthood. Some graduates will go on to college or trade school, some will join the military, some will start a career, and some may simply take a little time to figure out next steps. For all new graduates, this is a time of new freedom with compulsory education completed. 

The Clifton Times invited families to send us their congratulatory messages as they celebrate this milestone. Submissions are listed alphabetically by FIRST name. 

Congratulations to all of the new graduates - may you each build the life you dream of for yourself as you go out into the big, beautiful world.
