ceremony is a ceremony
that as far as I know, is only done at my school
, Nolan Catholic High School
. The ceremony is actually a fairly simple
one, but the beauty
of this ceremony lies in its simplicity. At the end of the year
, every senior
chooses one member of the faculty
to represent the school at the ceremony. At the ceremony, when the student's name is called, he or she goes up to the stage, carrying their robe
, and hand it to their chosen faculty member
, who then assists them in putting the robe on.
It is sort of a way for the student to symbolically say that this faculty member has made a difference for them. It is also a way of recognizing the role the school, represented by the chosen faculty member, has had in educating the student; in effect saying that without them they would not have gotten the robe and therefore would not have graduated.
