The high school graduation ceremony for Southwestern College graduates is just a few days away.
For those with college degrees, the ceremony is a rite of passage.
The ceremony, which has become the unofficial graduation of Southwestern graduates, is held on April 8, at the school in Sarasota, Florida.
This year, the school has the highest graduation rate in Sarasotas history.
It also has the lowest dropout rate.
In the process, graduates will get to know their peers and meet new friends.
For many graduates, this is the first time they will be able to share their high school achievements with others.
But it’s a tough road to graduation.
The graduation ceremony, typically held at the university, is a private event, and the student body is comprised mostly of white and Asian graduates.
Many have been left behind, leaving many graduating with a difficult transition.
For those graduating with bachelor’s degrees, graduation is a moment of acceptance and recognition, said Lisa Tressel, executive director of the Sarasota Community Foundation.
Graduates can expect to have a job, a home and a family, and be able apply to work for the company of their choice, Tressels said.
But they will need to work with their community, Tretsel said.
To make matters worse, Southwestern is a predominantly black school.
Its alumni include former President Jimmy Carter, former Vice President Al Gore, and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
Students are required to complete a four-year college coursework and a three-year master’s degree.
The degree program at Southwestern includes a certificate in social work and a master’s in public policy.
It’s the only college in the state that provides two-year degrees in public administration.
“I think for all of us, it’s very important that we get a diploma,” said student, Brittany Lasker, a fourth-year student.
“I’ve been working to get that degree.”
Graduating Southwestern students are required by law to get a bachelor’s degree, but it takes two years for them to complete the program.
Many students take the two- and four-credit courses and pass the exams to graduate.
For many Southwestern grads, graduation comes with an emotional roller coaster, as they must make hard decisions about their future and their future families.
Tressel said she hopes students understand that the school’s graduation ceremony is not meant to be an easy one.
“This is not about just the graduation,” Tressell said.
“It’s about how you live your life.”
For students graduating with an associate’s degree in public service, graduation may be more difficult.
Many of them are expected to work in their communities, Tretssel said, but they may have to do so on a part-time basis.
Students who graduate with a bachelor of arts degree in social service, such as social worker, can transfer their degree to a more competitive college or university, which could be a better option for them.
