Top 10 Highlights of Temple's Graduation

1. The Filling of the Empty Seats.

2. Largest Graduating Class in Temple's History over 9,000 students.

3. Youngest Graduate was 19 years old.

4. Oldest Graduate was 73 years old.

5.  Five set of twins were part of the graduation class.

6.  Never a guarantee but a hopeful anticipation, alumni Bill Cosby spoke at graduation.

7. We got lucky our second graduation for Bachelor of Science in Education followed the commencement only an hour later.  There were still other graduation going on at campus at 6PM.

8. Dan Baker public address announcer for Veterans Stadium, Lincoln Financial Field and Citizens Bank Park in Philadelphia gave the keynote address  at the College of Education Graduation.  He is a Temple Alumni and started our his career as a teacher.

9. One piece of equipment I failed to mention yesterday was binoculars.  I did not need them but I was able to pull them out of my bag and let the lady sitting next to me use them to find her daughter Some folks had big posters congratulating there relatives and it was also a good way for the graduate to find them in a crowd.

10. Of course the highlight for me was watching my child that Temple made a man today and a teacher tomorrow.

Remember, no one is ever too big for ice cream. After dinner at Han Dynasty in Philadelphia that is how we ended our day at The Franklin Fountain.

The City of Brotherly Love has a lot of attractions to offer and Temple University is one of them.
