Graduation rehearsal was in full force today at 10 a.m. in the Pickel building.
Students were asked to stand if they were the first person in their family to graduate from college, and over half the room stood up.
“It was a good experience all the way through. I’m leaving with a good degree in secondary education,” said Jason Johnson on his experience with Vol State.
Phillip Dixon said, “What I took from Vol State is the knowledge and experience that I got with the hands on work in the TV studio. Part of me is happy it’s over and part of me isn’t. The plan is to try to get a job, but if not I will most likely go on to another school.”
President Dr. Warren Nichols gave a few reminders. “Leave your cell phones on vibrate or silent during the ceremony.” He also wanted to let graduates know that family members are welcome to take pictures from the seats, but not to come up to the front as this can cause a traffic jam.
Graduating students are asked to be at Vol State in the Pickel building at 9:15 a.m. Saturday May 8, 2010.
If there are empty seats due to those unable to attend, students are asked to fill in those seats. Remember to wear comfortable appropriate clothing.
