And after weeks of studying and exams, that time has come. Graduation Week 2012 is upon us. Harford Community College led the way with its commencement exercises on May 17. The senior students at the John Archer School will graduate in ceremonies beginning at 1:15 p.m. Friday, June 1 at the school.

He did his best -- but for a puppy mill rescue who had only just begun to trust me enough to take treats from my hand, it was too soon.
