UA Class of 2020 Graduation Ceremony/Weekend
With the official cancellation of the spring graduation ceremony, the harsh reality is that it Is an essential casualty of a greater issue we are all facing. After posting on the Parents of 2020 Facebook Page about this, This seems to be an easier way to get this list to the Presidents office with your permission to show parental support for a later date, regardless of whether it would be possible for them to join the August/Summer graduation, or December/Winter graduation)
If possible, would you and your children attend and participate in a complete Class of 2020 Graduation Ceremony in Tuscaloosa (regardless of it being in August or December as circumstances would allow) that would allow the Spring class the opportunity to have their moment of walking across the stage and getting their well-earned diploma
This would provide the students the experience they earned, the parents the experience of watching the ceremony and ‘being there’, provide a much-needed boost to the local economy, and a wonderful sense of future celebrations that we all could use and look forward to. It would also provide a tremendous amount of goodwill to the young men and women as they become alumni and earn enough money to donate to the University in the future.
Please sign this document so I can forward it to the Presidents office so he and his team see that this is NOT a Petition of protest, but rather a petition/listing of people who support this idea that will provide a great deal of benefits for so many parties.
