It's about that time of year when graduation ceremonies, well-wishes and job-hunting begin. Fountain pens and diamond earrings are wonderful and traditional graduation gifts but sometimes something practical can truly be the best option. So send off the graduate in your life with something they'll not only cherish and love because it came from you but they'll actually use on a regular basis!
Graduation season is here! And with that comes long (and sometimes boring) ceremonies. Would you rather sit in the hot sun (or rain) or be cool inside during the ceremony? Take our poll and let us know!
It's that time of year again when a new class of high schoolers leaves the nest and heads out to make their way in the world. Some have lofty dreams and expectations, some don't know what they want to do with their lives yet and others are just glad to be graduating. Whatever may be next for a particular graduating senior, I humbly offer my advice.
I attended commencement exercises for John Wood Community College back in May. As part of the graduation fee, I received a cap and gown.
Years ago this was a rental - wear the items, then return. Nowadays you keep the Cap & Gown.
I recently attended the commencement ceremony at John Wood Community College. Pomp & Circumstance played in my head, but not at John Wood's commencement.
It got me to think: why is Pomp & Circumstance played at graduation ceremonies?
Graduation time is here! 13-years of hard work have all come down to this. As the parent of a Senior, I couldn't be prouder.
For those of you looking for information about this years area graduation ceremonies, I have taken the liberty of making the phone calls for you...
My son will graduate this May as a member of the Class of 2013.
We are in the process of picking out schools and carving out a future path for him. These seem like easy things to do compared to picking out a graduation gift.
