One of the “not to miss” graduation weekend events is the annual Candle Lighting Ceremony which takes place on the Saturday night before Commencement. The tradition dates back some 13 years now and is a symbolic way of welcoming the new alumni into the Graceland family and the Alumni Association. Alumni Board President Sam Smalldon led this year’s event with Graceland President John Sellars giving the graduates one more pep talk before they received their diplomas the following day. Make plans to attend next year’s Candle Lighting Ceremony!
