CARL RUSSO PHOTOS: High school classmates that endured hundreds of hours wearing masks and an equal amount of time in virtual Zoom classrooms smiled and beamed with pride as they graduated Saturday morning.

"How wonderful it is to see everyone this morning and see your entire face this morning," said Scott Strainge, assistant principal at Timberlane Regional High School, at the start of the 10 a.m. graduation ceremony.

Dressed in the school's white and maroon colors, hundreds of students from Plaistow, Atkinson, Danville and Sandown graduated under an overcast sky on the school's game field.
