One of the more meaningful events for graduation weekend is the Hooding Ceremony. After the welcome by Dr. Thomas, Dr. and Mrs. Hadley presented the baby cups. The class showed photos from their medical school experience followed by an appeal to participate in their adoption of La Loma Luz Adventist Hospital in Belize. The hooding portion of the program is always inspiring, with Drs. Lamberton and Shankel reading words of thanks written by the students—thanksgiving to family, loved ones, and God.
