At My First Graduation, I . . .

graduation-memories I knew our Leadership Development Program has graduations. I knew our Child Sponsorship [3] Program has graduations. But I had no idea that our Child Survival Program (CSP) has graduations, until I saw this precious little gem…

The kids obviously take the graduation ceremony very seriously. (Or maybe they’re simply concentrating on holding such a large diploma.)

I distinctly remember my first graduation ceremony … 6th grade. I marched across the stage to get my diploma and then gathered with my class on three tiers of bleachers and sang “Country Roads” by John Denver. Even after 21 years I still remember every word to that song. I wonder what these CSP graduates will remember about their graduation.

How about you? What do you remember about your first graduation? Anything interesting?
