One Step Closer to Becoming CA Grads

Caps and gowns were handed out today, making seniors’ May 24 graduation all the more real! Up next: Tuesday’s Capping Ceremony. During this annual tradition, each senior chooses a member of the Cushing community – such as a dorm parent, teacher, advisor, or friend -- to play the role of the “capper.” Seniors are divided into small groups and called to the stage with their capper during an all-school assembly. After a ceremonious drum roll, and with great fanfare, cappers place the mortarboards on the soon-to-be graduates, bringing them one step closer to the big day.
