Senior/graduate pinnings always are a celebration.
But it takes on a different meaning for these graduates.
For the attendees of DPSCD's Adult Education Center-West Campus's Graduate Pinning, it took on the meaning of perseverance, overcoming obstacles, and having the will to finish.
And that was the underlying theme of each graduate's testimony as each of them addressed their fellow students with their names, length of time it took them to complete all of their classes or pass all parts of the GED test, and their postsecondary plans.
Congratulations to the Class of 2019!
