And then the day finally arrives… that day that didn’t seem possible months earlier. Graduation! It is a day filled with pride, excitement and a small dose of anxiety. Graduation is a BIG deal on campus! It is solemn, important and a true “rite of passage” for our students. They entered as one person… and after months of hard work they have transformed themselves into older, wiser, healthier, and confident young men.
We won’t give away much about this special event, but know that family, friends, staff and students gather at the medicine wheel for “honorable closure”. During this celebration, students express what they have learned – what is real and true about themselves – while at Cherokee Creek. It is also a time to share meaningful goodbyes with their CCBS brothers and be reunited with those who have supported them from a distance. You won’t want to miss it!
