   After roughly 18 years of watching their babies grow, progressing from one grade to another, parents were proud as their young men and women received their diplomas at Green Lake School’s commencement ceremony Sunday afternoon.

   Some parents had the privilege to give their child a hug after they received their diploma while others enjoyed an embrace from their youngster and a flower in appreciation during the tribute to parents.

   Teachers, principals and school staff also smiled as they witnessed the kids they helped nurture through school achieve the final goal: graduation.
