MEMORANDUM FOR TCA Class 46 Parents/Guardians
SUBJECT: Graduation Announcement
14 April 2016
We have reached a time where excitement grows each day here at the Academy and I imagine with you also. Graduation is just a few short weeks away.
Unfortunately, we have reached a point where attendance at graduation has exceeded the seating capacity at the Sampson County Agri-Exposition Center. Therefore, we must limit the number of attendees at the graduation ceremony. Each cadet will receive five (5) tickets for admission to the ceremony. Tickets are required for both adults and children due to the seating configuration and Fire Marshall requirements.
Each cadet’s mentor will also be sent one (1) ticket for admission. We are asking the mentors who cannot attend to please provide the family with their ticket. Likewise, if your family does not need all five tickets, request you return the excess tickets to your cadet so they could redistribute them to cadets who need additional tickets. Your cadet will also receive four (4) graduation announcements they may send to announce their graduation but keep in mind the recipients of the announcements will require tickets in order to attend the ceremony.
We will be issuing the Graduation tickets on the 2nd home pass, a parent/guardian will need to be here to sign for them.
The staff and I look forward to sharing in this celebration with you and the cadets. We look forward to seeing you on June 10, 2016.
