Class of 2018
Mobile/Baldwin Community Homeschool Graduation
Thursday, May 17, 2018, 2 PM
Robertsdale Church of the Nazarene
Host: Pastor Melissa Aaron, Senior Pastor
Organizer: Heather L. Weatherspoon, NGCHE
The Mobile/Baldwin Community Homeschool Graduation for the Class of 2018 will be held Thursday, May 17 at 2 PM. The ceremony will take place at Robertsdale Church of the Nazarene in Baldwin County. Rev. Melissa Aaron is graciously donating her time and the use of the church as a ministry to the homeschool community.
There is no direct charge for students to participate. However, cap and gown will be required. The spirit of individualism is a hallmark of the homeschool movement. In keeping with this spirit, each graduate is free to choose his or her own cap and gown colors. Parents may also wish to order diplomas to present to their students during the ceremony.
Any 2018 homeschool graduate from Southwest Alabama or the surrounding area is welcome. Do you use an out of town covering and need a local graduation ceremony? Do you homeschool without a covering? Is your student the only graduating senior in his or her covering and bashful about “walking” alone? All are welcome to join us!
Email NorthernGulfCoastHomeEducators@outlook.com with questions or to reserve a place in the ceremony. Interested families are also invited to attend an upcoming graduation meeting (see below).
