The Best Deerfield Academy Graduation Ever with a Suprise Appearance of a President
The female graduates were resplendent in their white dresses and carried yellow roses with the male graduates all in navy blazers and ties.All the other students also took part in the ceremonies.
A special wish was granted at the graduation through the Make a Wish Foundation -- one of the graduates has been battling bran cancer and former President Bill Clinton granted his wish by speaking in a videotape to the class.You may view his speech on youtube here.
Congratulations to the class of 2012 for all of your achievements -- academic, athletic, artistic, personal, and community-wise. Special congrats to the 26 cum laude society members -- an amazing group of high achievers in a class with special charisma, enthusiasm, and energy. I couldn't be prouder of my daughter and her fellow graduates.
As one of the speakers said -- the friendships made will last a lifetime.
