Accompanied by the symphonic sounds of “Pomp and Circumstance” and the proud smiles of family members and hospital employees, 15 patients marched down the aisle of the St. Jude Auditorium to commence the hospital’s annual kindergarten graduation.

Honoring patients who completed kindergarten during the year, teachers from the St. Jude School Program presented by Target helped the young patients put on their caps and gowns.

The patients were recognized during the May 17 ceremony, which included a presentation of certificates, a class of 2012 slideshow and a reading from a children’s book.
