Grad Growns

To participate in grad photos and the previously recorded walk across the stage that we did just in case of a virtual ceremony, graduates purchased a $25 grad package which included the grad gown, cap, tassel, and v-stoll.  Also included was a grad gift to be received in June. 

Graduates are responsible for bringing their grad gown, cap, and tassel to wear during the ceremony.  A new v-stoll will be provided to the grads in the line up for the ceremony as we were not provided a sufficient number for each graduate during grad photos.   

Graduates must wear their gown and v-stoll to walk across the stage.  Caps and tassels can we worn or carried.
