Students lose diplomas due to excessive cheering

I think that's a dumb rule. It's a graduation, it's supposed to be a happy time for all of those involved. Why mess around with that by imposing stupid rules like this?

Well that's just like, your opinion man.

Because if there was applause for every single graduate and they waited for that applause to die down before announcing the next person, it would take all day.

Huh? That doesn't make any sense. Celebrating is done at the end when the announcer presents the class, not after every graduate is announced. Graduation services have always worked this way, haven't they? :-?

Must be a fairly new development, I've never seen one work that way.

I have to admit that I was shocked by the ACLU response.

usually the parents and friends of the graduate cheer when the name of their student is called, but it can suck if the cheering keeps going and the next person's name isnt heard. there was an announcement at my graduation that you should wait until the end of all the names to cheer, but people didnt listen. we had 600 in my senior class of high school.

Dear student,

Through no fault of your own, you won't be getting a diploma. Sorry about that - we wish you the very best in your future endeavors.

Sincerely,
School Administration
