Photos of the Week: Winterline Graduation 2019

We're wrapping up our 2019 gap year with one last Photos of the Week installation, showing off the graduation ceremonies for both squads. Congratulations to our new alumni!

On Saturday, May 4th, Squads 1 and 2 each came together with family, friends, and staff to celebrate the conclusion of their 9 month journey. The ceremony was hosted at More Than Words, a non-profit bookstore in Boston with an online store that’s worth scrolling through and supporting!

We’re sad to say goodbye to our students, but it was a wonderful day hearing the student’s favorite stories, memories, and skills. Some made presentations or videos to share, others simply spoke from the heart. To honor Winterline’s roots in South Asia, our graduation ceremony includes a Tibetan scarfing ceremony, so each student receives a scarf and a yearbook full of memories from the trip. Of course, we took a lot of pictures to commemorate the event. Take a look at some of our favorites, and check out the rest on our Facebook page!
