Lauren Leslie Graduates from Appalachian State

What are your favorite graduation memories? College or high school. It doesn’t matter. Maybe it was an inspirational speech. Perhaps it was the giddy laughter of a graduate or the sea of tassels turning on a beautiful blue sky day.

I have no memory of my graduation from UNC. It’s because I didn’t go. I really regret that. When I graduated it was considered “cool” to skip the ceremony and accept the diploma in the mail from Chapel Hill. So I have no photos. No videos. No memories. How sad.

I am so glad that my daughter Lauren considered it "cool" to attend her college graduation. We had a great time in Boone this past weekend renting a cabin along the New River and celebrating her degree in elementary education from Appalachian State University. We did it up right: the special cake, a couple of nice dinners, lunch with the chancellor. And lots of photos.  View an audio slideshow from the weekend.

What about you? Please share your graduation memories.
