Last March, Virginia State University graduate Janae White ordered a customized graduation cap with pictures of her family members and mentors that helped her get her degree. More than a year later, White is finally able to wear her graduation cap with her family.
Sunday’s ceremony recognized students from classes of spring 2020, summer 2020, fall 2020 and spring 2021.
One by one, graduates walked across the stage to mark another milestone in their life. This is a moment many VSU graduates say they’ve been waiting for.
“It means the world to me that I got to walk the stage and my mother and godmother is right here watching me,” said White.
