Congratulations, graduates! We are proud to be able to call you GRCC alumni.
As you prepare for commencement by attending GRADfest, be sure to stop at the Alumni Relations table, where you will receive your "Stole of Appreciation." This stole to be worn at commencement with your cap and gown and is a gift from GRCC Foundation and Alumni Relations. It is our way to say thank you for choosing GRCC.
The Stole of Appreciation is a lasting symbol of gratitude and academic accomplishment, and can become a cherished keepsake by any honored recipient.
Here is how you thank someone who has made a difference in your life:
1. Wear your stole during commencement.
2. Afterwards, you may present the stole to someone in your life who has provided extraordinary support throughout your educational journey - i.e. a close friend, parent, relative, mentor or GRCC faculty or staff member.
3. Submit your Stole of Appreciation story and tell us who you chose to give it to and why they were important to your success.
