Barrington High School Principal Joseph Hurley called Sunday a "spectacular day."
He was referring for the most part to the weather -- the first time in three years as principal that he has led a graduation exercise outside at Victory Field.
But Hurley could have been referring to the Class of 2012 as well, which showed him time and again, he said, that the seniors had compassion and affection in abundance.
See the four-minute video above to see what Hurley was talking about. And check out the photo gallery as well. It was definitely a spectacular day to be a senior and a parent at Barrington High School.
