Even after all these years of covering commencements, the strains of "Pomp and Circumstance" inspire me with optimism. After all, I have high hopes for this year's group of newly minted graduates.
I look forward each spring to the traditions of covering at least one local commencement. I'll be at Cannelton's ceremony Saturday and Perry Central's on Sunday. I had the pleasure of covering South Spencer High School's commencement exercises this past weekend.
