WEST CALDWELL, N.J. - Almost 200 seniors stood, cheered, and threw their hats up in the air on the James Caldwell High School football field on Thursday night. 

It wasn't for an athletic competition or prom, but a more important event in the lives of every high school student - graduation.

Thursday was all about saying goodbye to one chapter of their lives and moving on to another.
