It is that time of year when school seniors the world over get excited about their graduation. Well, not so much this year as we practice proper distancing and isolation. Our oldest grand-daughter was due to graduate from college. We had planned to go to Pittsburgh PA, attend the ceremonies, and celebrate. Instead, the school officials arranged for graduation via Zoom.
It is a small school and class, so the number of people involved was not a problem. Graduates, parents, siblings, grand parents, and friends were all welcome. They zoomed in from all over. Here is one of several pages with little boxes with people inside we could see online. We’re in the top row, second from the left. I’m taking this picture of the screen.
To our left was the emcee of the ceremonies. She was funny, made it very informal, and had kind words for all of the graduates. Here is a better shot of her and her colleague. She is saying something to our grand-daughter about her diploma and course of studies.
Our grand-daughter gave thanks to family, friends, and school officials for the day. Here she is in her living room with cap and gown and decorations. Each graduate got their time in the spotlight. It was a very unique and positive commencement. Nothing at all like the normal. But, it will be remembered. We were happy for our grand-daughter. We wish her well and success in the future.
Such unusual times, definitely one for the memory books. Congrats to your granddaughter!
