These young adults are absolutely amazing! Cheers to the Paly class of 2012.

This was the 4th Paly graduation I attended, and it was the longest by about 45 minutes (close to 2 1/2 hours). The people reading names took entirely too long. It got to the point where others in my row were clocking the reading and calculating how long it would take to get through all of the graduates. Some of the announcers sounded like they were trying out for a pro wrestling job.
Also -- five speeches from students? One was nearly 10 minutes long, and was not very interesting. I enjoyed Osagiede's but the rest were forgettable. Disappointing after some of the great speeches I heard in previous graduations.
I hope future ceremonies are managed better, especially if I have to be there again.

Paly parent, don't be like this. The graduation ceremony is for the graduating class of 2012, not for you. I'm surprised you're so self-centered that you're complaining about the length of a ceremony that many of my peers and I loved.
