Celebrating Philadelphia’s 2013 graduates at Toss Your Caps

We had another great experience this year at Philadelphia’s fourth annual Toss Your Caps event on the Art Museum steps. On Friday, May 10, graduates representing Peirce College, as well as other area colleges, were invited to the Art Museum to take photos with Mayor Nutter and celebrate earning their college degree.
TOSS YOUR CAPS: Philadelphia graduates celebrate earning their college degrees

The event was created to show Mayor Nutter’s support for Philadelphians’ who earn their college degree and keep the city’s focus on education and degree attainment top of mind. Mayor Nutter also recognized our 17 Parent University graduates, who have overcome incredible obstacles to earn their college degrees and be role models for their children, the community, and all Philadelphians.

We want to thank Mayor Nutter, City of Philadelphia Chief Education Officer Dr. Lori Shorr, and all the educators and students who came out and celebrated with us. For more photos of the event, check out our album on Facebook.

Congratulations to all of Philadelphia’s 2013 graduates!
