A signup sheet is located by the Student Association Office in Wilkinson Hall, and will be updated. Students are expected to keep appointments, as missed appointments will result in students not being pictured in the Yearbook, though names will be listed.

Drapes of the graduation gown will be provided, though men should wear a shirt and tie. Please do not wear a top with a high collar, such as a turtleneck, and arrive at your appointment 10-15 minutes early to be checked-in and draped with the graduation gown and hood.

Questions? Please contact Othniel Joseph at or text (and state name) to 240-605-1083240-605-1083.
