The Donning ceremony is a Hispanic, African American and International tradition, where parents, family and friends place the

stole of the graduate before graduation. A family member or friend is given the opportunity to express what the graduate/student

means to their family. The ceremony is a heartfelt and warm celebration as the graduate prepares to move into the next stage of

their life.
