Ready! Set! Graduate!
There is a lot of fidgeting and fixing while waiting to graduate, and Lincoln Trail College International student Claire Levaux, Belgium, was using the reflection from the entry doors to make sure her hat was straight, while fellow International student and Gonxhe Selimi, Germany, provided encouragement.

Baseball a journey of 'personal worth'
It's good to feel the sun warm my back again as I dig in the garden. The ground is still cold beneath my knees and hands, but that will change. I am so relieved to be outdoors again and free of the burden and worry of surviving the winter. That may have been imagined, but I've had nights when I thought it likely, and lived places where it was possible. It is a relief to have that behind me. It's temporary.
