Peirce College Celebrates Commencement at the Sixth Annual Toss Your Caps Event

Each year, Mayor Nutter and the Education Task Force of the City of Philadelphia invite area universities and colleges to come together on the Art Museum steps to celebrate the 2015 college graduates with the annual Toss Your Caps event.  2015 was a particularly special occasion for this annual event as it marked Mayor Nutter’s last year in office and Peirce’s 150th birthday.

On Friday, May 8th, a group of the College’s graduating students gathered to attend and as always, it was a blast! Students were recognized by Mayor Nutter and joined their fellow Philadelphia graduates of neighboring schools to toss their caps in celebration!

Other special moments included Kathy Sledge’s performance of her hit “We are Family”, and Mayor Nutter’s special shout out to Peirce President Jim Mergiotti; President Mergiotti was the only president in attendance who held the honor of attending all six Toss Your Caps events.

Thank you to the students who participated in this event. We’ll see you at Commencement on June 11th!
