It's Graduation time and I LOVE IT! I will attend 6 High School and Middle School graduations this week.
I am a member of the Konocti Unified School District School Board and this is Graduation season. We will graduate students from our Middle School, Community Day School, Independant Study Program, Continuation High School, Traditional High School and Adult School. We are a small school district in Northern California, but we take graduation seriously. Each school will have it's own ceremony with cap & gown/pomp & circumstance. Close to 500 people will walk across the stage and receive a diploma to the "screaming joy" of family and friends.
Cultures have always had a right of passage...a way to mark the transition to maturation. Ours is the high school graduation. Some of these young men and women will be leaving for the armed forces, some will leave for college and some will join the work force. For all of them...life will never be the same!
Those I am most proud of are the Adult School Graduates! They have overcome amazing obstacles to obtain a High School Diploma. It's fun to watch this group. Most are young...some are older...some are pregnant...some have children in the audience...despite all the odds they stuck-to-it!
It's time to leave for the next Graduation/Celebration...it's a great time of year.
P.S.: and they are our future clients...
