What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

With gradua­ tion just around the comer, seniors should plan for their last events here at Carroll. “Graduation is such an exciting time that requires preparation for both students and parents,” said Mary Dutton, a registrar and direc­ tor of graduation. With the senior party being a hit with many memories made, less than two weeks of graduation events remain. On May 2-3, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. graduates need to pick up their gown, hood, and baccalaure­ ate tickets, and complete a brief survey at St. Al’s. “As a reminder, students need to have a financial aid exit interview in addition to a cleared record from the business office in order to receive gowns and hoods,” said Dutton. According to Dutton, students should be aware that they only receive two tickets for the bacca­ laureate mass. On Friday, May 4, graduates need to roll out of bed and get over to the athletic center for rehearsal at 10 a.m. “It is important for students to be at rehearsal to get organized and also start getting both excited and sad,” said Dutton. After the rehearsal, a barbeque will be held for graduates, friends, and family, as well as faculty and staff. “The barbeque is a great time to thank your friends and faculty along with remembering your amazing years here at Carroll,” said Patrick Harris, student activi­ ties director. At 5 p.m. the ROTC commis­ sioning ceremony will take place in Trinity Hall, where Kyle Borne, Hats and tassles will fly on Saturday, May 5. Scout Murphy, and Mark Thompson will be commis­ sioned. The day you have been waiting for arrives on Saturday, May 5. At 10 a.m. Baccalaureate mass will be held at the St. Helena Cathedral. After mass, a senior picture will be taken on the steps of the Cathedral. Following mass, a brunch will be held for all graduates, family, and faculty from 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. For graduates the brunch is free, ' ' PHOTO B Y VALERIE ERWIN but for family members must pay $10 per person to attend. “I encourage all graduates to attend the brunch,” said Harris. “Graduation is a celebration of yourself and others around you.” The final commencement cer­ emony will take place at 2 p.m. in the athletic center. “Enjoy the moment, be excited for the future, and remember the amazing memories of the past,” said Dutton. r Graduation week events W hen W here W h v ■ May 2-3 10 a.m . - 3 p.m St. APs Pick up gow n , hood, baccalaureate tickets ■ May 4 10 a.m . noon - 2 p.m . 6 - 8 p.m .
