This month scholars, students and families gather to applaud the graduates at Commencement.
Her family gathered yesterday at Washington College in Chestertown, MD to cheer Juliana
Schoettler as she accepted her diploma.
The day was perfect - warm and sunny. You could feel the happy, positive vibes from all the gathered.
