The latest group of high school seniors from our coverage area (Fayetteville-Manlius, Jamesville-DeWitt, East Syracuse-Minoa) have crossed the stage and become high school graduates, and the recent commencement ceremonies were as well done and moving as ever. It is difficult to know what to say to recent graduates when seeking to give them life advice, especially if one wants to avoid clichés and repetition.
