Grad Bios

As you cross the stage at the commencement ceremonies a short biography is read. The biography tells the watching public your future plans and may reflect on your years in school. Not everyone watching the ceremony knows you. This is your opportunity to write the short biography that tells the public who you are and what you wish to become. This is not the time to thank parents, friends or family. Thank them in person before or after the ceremony. Biographies need to be appropriate for all audiences. Here are some examples: "Stacey is pleased to have graduated. As she leaves Mount Baker she knows she will miss all of the Outdoor Skills field trips but looks forward to starting a career as a welder." "Grant's time in middle school and high school was all about basketball. Now that he has graduated he intends to "turn over a new leaf" by attending the College of the Rockies and playing volleyball." BIOGRAPHIES ARE DUE BY FRIDAY JUNE 21.
