We sat together through graduation speeches that somehow didn't seem as boring or trite as most gradua- tion speeches. In our dignified scholar's garb we marched out of the coliseum only to be fussed over by substitute mothers from the registrar's office before we walked across the stage and received our empty diploma covers from the chairman of the board and congratulations from the president.
