On the Cover The Rose Ceremony The Rose Ceremony is held each year before Commencement. The history of this tradition goes back nearly 20 years when the first graduates from the One Day A Week Saturday program were honored with a Ceremony and given a rose as a symbol of their accomplishment. One student, after receiving her rose, took it upon herself to dedicate the rose to the people in her life who helped her fulfill her dream of an education. From that one student's dedication, the tradition was born. Graduates from the 2019 Rose Ceremony, from center clockwise: Beverleigh Fateev (blue dress), Yecika Irlanda, Nuria Sotiropoulos, Gabrielle Gonzalez, Lisa Bingham- Kellier, Jenifer Ohanesian, Stephanie Teixeira, Roxanne Shelton, and Angelica Cruz.
