Participating in graduation ceremonies is a special honor for me. The truth be known, I often have to contain myself because the speeches, songs, awards, and jubilation of graduates and families is humbling and I get sentimental.
During graduations I reminisce about the spring of 1984, which is when a school board member handed me my diploma.
