Many people feel as though the change in the color of the cap and gown from white and blue to red is a sudden, and unfair change. No student and/or parent was informed of this change until after the deposits for caps and gowns were made. It is understandable that the reasoning for the change is to support gender equality in order to make each and every person feel comfortable, but the way the decisions were made is not fair. The senior portraits have been taken in white and blue gowns, so the reasoning of the color being changed all of a sudden is unclear. Some students have previously planned to wear an older siblings gown, and now that is not an option anymore due to the change of color and it is possibly too late to order a new gown. The class of 2017 would prefer that the tradition of white and blue gowns should be carried on. The student should be able to choose what color he/she would like to wear on graduation day.
