Gordon's Commencement celebrates students the same way Gordon educates them: child by child, with equal attention to their hearts and their minds. 

Each graduate is honored with a diploma that includes a quote chosen especially for them by the faculty. Their advisors read the quotes for the audience, and their introductory remarks are personal, heartfelt and deeply moving.
