Graduation 2010 ... Blue Ridge Community College

To the strains of Pomp and Circumstance, SWAC Daughter joined the processional for Blue Ridge Community College's commencement ceremony on May 15, 2010, on the campus' green in Weyers Cave, Virginia. The red stole represented membership in Alpha Beta Gamma Business Honor Society, and the gold stole signified membership in the Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society.

She received congratulations and a diploma from Dr. John Downey, BRCC President.

While holding down three part-time jobs, volunteering at BRCC, and attending classes, she was able to earn a 3.78 GPA. Newly retired BRCC president Dr. James Perkins, keynote graduation speaker, is in background.

Recessional as graduates head indoors to shuck the gowns and celebrate! Our family celebrated by heading to the Outer Banks.

One happy graduate. Accepted at Mary Baldwin College in Staunton, she will now continue pursuing her degree.

This home school graduate knew at the age of 8 that she wanted to be a business entrepreneur. 

Update: SWAC Daughter fulfills her dream as she graduates with Mary Baldwin College's Class of  2012 with a degree in business.
