Hello everyone. This is Ashley Thacker and I’m back with our second podcast for I’m Here With on RM radio. And today we are talking to seniors who are receiving their cap and gowns.
We are in the library where Herff Jones is passing out the commencement regalia, which consists of the gown, hat and tassel?
I’m here with Tammy Walters from Herff Jones. And can you describe to me the process of getting the caps and gowns?
Back in the fall. You have a meeting – the seniors meeting. They tell them all about all the things we offer from the caps, gowns, sweatshirts, t-shirts, all that fun kind of stuff and y’all do orders then and then they come in in the spring. If you haven’t ordered you can always order online and you can always do a late order. So it’s never too late to get your cap and gown and then they come in the spring to the school and then they all pick them up in the spring on the government days, that’s how you get all your stuff.
I’m here with Yvonne Jefferson, and she’s here getting her cap and gown today. What are you looking forward to the most about graduation?
Friends and family and having fun and enjoying you know the moments.
