WEST ORANGE, NJ — Countdown to graduation officially began on May 27 with the West Orange High School senior prom held at the Birchwood Manor in Whippany. Graduation will be held at Codey Arena on June 22, beginning at 7 p.m.

The rite of passage brought out the best in the Class of 2016 as they arrived looking red carpet-ready, perhaps representing a bittersweet moment for parents, family and friends as they saw their children looking so grown up.
