Allen Graduates from IB and Britannia

June 11, 2013

Allen was our third child to graduate with an IB diploma from Britannia Secondary High School. David, Karalee, Barb, Diana, Jocelyn, Daniel, and Kevin all attended the ceremony, which was held in the main gym at Brit. After thousands of hours of the Greer family being in the gym for sports, it was great to see it all decorated for graduation. David's Dad Jim (Papa) took part in many of Allen's graduation ceremonies, but at 89 he wasn't up to spending three hours on a chair in the school gym.

All the students filed in from two doors. Each then went across the stage to get their graduation diploma. Allen won two scholarships. He was one of only fourteen students, out of over one hundred, to win the Academic Shield. The Academic Shield is awarded to students who are on the honor row for twelve of thirteen semesters from Grade 8 to Grade 12. An amazing achievement.

Afterwards, we mingled outside. Kevin drove David's Mom Diana back to her hotel, while the rest of us went downstairs to the cafeteria. There was sandwiches, sushi, cookies, and cake to celebrate the 2013 Britannia graduating class.
