Graduation Weekend

Graduation Weekend

Youngest daughter graduated this weekend...a two day celebration!

Hub and I left early Friday morning; we never arrive late...as a matter of fact we are usually a good hour to 30 minutes ahead of schedule.  A good thing we left early because we liked to have never found a parking place.

The conference room was set up beautifully.  Daughter and her hub had not arrived yet..so hub and I found the perfect table and met some interesting parents who had also arrived early.

Daughter and hub arrived, but we had to change tables-a different story.
The ceremony began.  According to the department chair this was the first time that 26 students had started in the DPT program and 26 students finished!  This says a lot about the program and the students' dedication.

The students received their white coat and pin.  The department chair put the white coat on and daughter's husband pinned the pin.  I video this section.

Daughter is the one standing behind the girl with the glasses on.
Couldn't capture all the students.

Hub and I are very proud of her accomplishment!

After the white coat and pinning ceremony, a slide show was shown.  A couple of students said something about each classmate.  Lots of chuckles (inside jokes only the classmates understood) and laughs.

Later that evening was the hooding ceremony.  I cry every time I hear bagpipes, and I love hearing the bagpipes. It was very difficult for me to capture the moment in pictures, thankfully I can purchase pictures!

On Saturday we had to return for the awarding of the diploma.

It is official....Introducing Dr. Emily Doane Waugh!

Another chapter is closing, but I know there is more to this story.....
