The Stole of Gratitude
The Legend of the Stole of Gratitude *Every graduate has had a special person who, through moral or financial support, made a big difference in his or her life. The Stole of Gratitude offers an opportunity to say, "Thanks for helping me make it though, thanks for making it possible for me to succeed!" After the ceremony, the new graduate presents the Stole of Gratitude to someone who provided extraordinary support or who has helped with wisdom, words of encouragement, or financial assistance. **Please Note: These are not to be worn with your Cap and Gown or during the Graduation Ceremony.
