We invite graduates to wear their cap and gown while they watch the live feed of the Virtual Commencement with their family and loved ones. As you watch, we invite family and friends to post congratulatory messages in the live comments & post a picture of your senior in their cap & gown using the hashtag #​Kingsmen2020 to help us collect and see all your pictures (pictures can only be posted in comments on Facebook).
