Every year graduating seniors gather at Longwood Gardens to take in the beauty, and to take their very own beauty shots in the form of video portraits that will air on 6abc throughout the summer on Saturday nights. It's a beloved tradition that puts the best and the brightest in the spotlight.

Politics are among the topics discussed by the students during a one hour special, but the portion of the taped production that is all time favorite is the donning of their colorful caps and gowns and then there is the promenade inside the conservatory, and the group shots.

Tamela Edwards and Matt O'Donnell will host the best of the class special which will air on May 31st.

Of course, the real stars are these students who appreciate being featured in a positive light.
