Years of study all come to fruition as graduates cross the stage to receive their degrees at convocation – the ceremony that marks the end of one stage of life and the beginning of the next. Around 150 people join the ranks of Crandall alumni with degrees/certificates/awards in hand, celebrating with the hundreds of friends, family, faculty, and officials in attendance (and watching online).

Here are a few of the highlights of this year’s convocation weekend.
