By Cristal Robinson, Staff Writer

Important Information for Seniors!

Please order your cap and gown from Jostens ASAP. You can order online, simply go to jostens.com where you can order a cap and gown package for $29.00. To be clear - the $29 cap and gown package DOES include a tassel and you do NOT need to order an additional tassel (unless you want a specialty one). A direct link to the cap and gown order page is here. Please order your cap and gown no later than November 19th, 2019. 

If you would like to borrow a cap and gown from a previous West G grad that is approximately the same size as you, you may do so. Please note that ALL gowns will be navy blue this year. If you are going to borrow a cap and gown, please let me know by the cap and gown order deadline, November 19th. You also will want to purchase a tassel since the tassels are unique to each class.
