Erika's Graduation, Part 3: Graduation!

After posting the colours, Erika had to rush around the hallway, throw her cap and gown over her uniform, and get in line to march in. They started at the end of the alphabet, so that didn't give her much time! (Erika is third in line).

Erika is third in, in the back row.
The girls wear light blue, and the boys
wear dark blue. Everyone in front of her was
tall, so we could only see her by going around the side.

The Senior high girls in chorus did special music (Erika is not in chorus).

The Senior gave roses to their parents.

Erika stepping forward to receive her awards. We were so surprised. They'd reached almost the end of the alphabet and there was a long pause, so we thought they were done. Then they called her name! She was surprised, too. She received two awards!! She got the American Legion award from the Legion in our town that selected her for Girl's State last summer. She also received the John Philips Sousa award. I wish I could copy the citations, but that would take too much room! We are so proud of her. Both awards came with small scholarships.
