Most young adults enter their first interview with uncontrollable nerves, shaking hands, and no idea what to expect. For the seniors of American Christian Academy, that will not be the case. 

It’s happening. Another child is about to graduate from UA, and I couldn’t be prouder. Like many parents, I find myself nostalgic, and filled with the overwhelming need to offer unsolicited advice to her for the future. Unfortunately for her and family, I share in print! Here goes …

The Tuscaloosa County School system has announced changes to the dates and times of this year’s graduation ceremonies. It’s a move prompted by concerns raised by students and their families.

It's that time of year again, the one where we send senior classes off into the wild blue yonder.  But before they go, many of them will participate in some regular traditions and we want to know what you think are our best local senior traditions?

No pressure. It's only the rest of your life.  

If you are an inhabitant of the planet Earth and reside somewhere in the U.S (especially Tuscaloosa), there is a good chance that you know someone who is graduating or has *just* graduated from an institution of learning this month. Whether it's college, high school, tech school, or nursing school, truckloads of young, bright minds are about to burst into the workforce to prove their worth in the business community and attempt to make the world a better place.  

How many you ask?

For those of us who are (ahem) a few years removed from our college days, this time of year often finds us waxing nostalgic. Seeing those graduation invites on the fridge makes us think back to the wonderful years we spent in higher learning.

Do I miss it? You bet I do. Would I go back? Maybe, for a week or so. But the truth is, when you really stop to think about it, a lot of things we’d say we miss the most about college – well, we can still enjoy those things. Granted, we might need to get a sitter and juggle schedules a bit…but still. It’s doable.
