Proceeding to this years graduation of the 2019 class, we believe that these new graduates should be able to wear cords honoring their achievements.
Honor students who are deserving of wearing their honoring cords at graduation have worked very hard throughout their highschool years so they can be recognized for their achievements. With this school year coming to an end, there's a chance that the school board will not allow their students to be recognized at the end of their senior year. If this happens, then there will surely be a decline in the students who will strive to do their best in school, because they will not be recognized.
Through today's moral of giving everyone a trophy, schools would rather prohibit everyone from wearing special vestments based on their knowledge and achievements in order to not exclude anyone.
Graduation honor cords can be worn for a variety of reasons. Most usually, students who are wearing celebrative decorations,have graduated with honors. Other ways to be able to wear special vestments at graduation, is being in extracurricular activities such as: outside clubs, student clubs, being apart of the school’s band or orchestra, or being on a sports team.
