Graduation Ceremony Participation

The graduation ceremony from any high school is a special event in the life of a student, and memories of that event are carried for a lifetime.  This special time is made all the more meaningful because of the sense of accomplishing something significant in life, and meeting a standard of performance that is commensurate with being honored as a young adult, ready for the post-high school world.
