Twice-a-Year Graduation Ceremonies
In a break with tradition, starting this month the Alumni Club of Stepping Stone San Diego will begin holding graduation ceremonies biannually. Now the graduates at Stepping Stone now will not have to wait up to a year to receive their diploma and some much-deserved public recognition for completing our Residential Program.
The next graduation will be held on Friday August 22nd, 2014, at “The Stone” 3767 Central Ave SD CA 92105. Doors open at 5:30 pm and the ceremony will begin at 6 pm. “Typically our graduation ceremony has been in late January or early February. A second ceremony during the year gives our graduates the opportunity to receive their diploma sooner,” said Tom Reise, Chairman of the Stepping Stone Board of Directors. “Graduation night at Stepping Stone is one of the most inspirational nights of the year for both the graduates and our guests. Now it will happen twice a year. These young adults have successfully completed a tremendous journey. It is a joy to see the look on their faces when handed their diploma.”
Members of the Stepping Stone Board of Directors and Staff including Executive Director Catherine Aquino will be there to welcome the graduates. A highlight of the evening will be the announcement of the receipt of a grant from the San Diego Human Dignity Foundation. The event is open to all. Light refreshments will be served.
