Grad Slogan/Quote Survey #1

Good Afternoon Graduates,


A few of you complete the Grad Slogan Survey that I had sent out but not many so I have redone it - please complete even if you did so previously as I have added some options. 


If we do not have a clear indication of a first choice, I may have to send out another survey after Tuesday to narrow down the top choices.


Please encourage ALL graduates to complete this survey so we can get the best representation possible.


This would be the slogan/quote that speaks for your Grad Class and is used by all speakers within their speeches as part of their message to you.


Thank you - again please have this done and into me by the end of Tuesday May 19th.

Have a great day,

Ms. Ram
