The thing I am finding out about graduations is that the less people there are graduating, the more they pack into the graduation. So whether their are 600 graduates, like my graduating class of 2003, or 55 graduates, it still takes just as long. I appreciate smaller graduations though as they are a lot more personal. There is time to share a little about each student and honor them; as apposed to shooting them through an assembly line! Perhaps this says more about me than the graduations themselves; I like life to be a little more intimate.
Congratulations to the class of 2009!
