As a former superintendent of schools of SAD 6 (Bonny Eagle), I used to hand out diplomas and always wondered why. The Bonny Eagle superintendent of schools should never have been in the position she was placed in. We get out of touch.
May I suggest that it is the high school principal who should be passing out diplomas? The principal knows these students, deals with them daily and would know to let the small stuff pass.
Consider changing this tradition.
