The Best Deerfield Academy Graduation Ever with a Suprise Appearance of a President

The 2012 Deerfield Academy graduation that took place today at which 198 students graduated was magical -- from the bagpiper to the colonial fyfe and drum corps to the pomp and circumstance.

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.

Thanks for all the wonderful memories! With best wishes to the class of 2012!
