Graduation on Saturday Morning

Coker College is holding is 101st graduation this morning and last minute preparations are in full swing. I can hear Cody rehearsing the STAR SPANGLED BANNER down in the practice room. Some people have already grabbed front-row seats and there is still almost two hours before graduation. The grounds crew, as usual, has the campus looking great. This is an outdoor graduation and it appears that we will have cloud cover that should make it very pleasant this morning.

This is Dr. Dawson's last graduation as he is retiring and Dr. Lois Gibson, an English professor, is also leaving after 31 years service to Coker. As all graduations, happy/sad time and another example of the the saying tempus fugit; it does not just fly, it disappears.
