Attending a White Coat Ceremony

Despite Blizzard Warnings, we traveled from North and South Dakota to attend the White Coat Ceremony for our oldest daughter's PA class at her college in Lincoln, NE. Here, we have gathered, just minutes before the ceremony. Our daughters, with their supportive boyfriends...and proud parents.
The ceremony recognizes the third year students as they prepare for their final year of rigorous studies and practical application. Their were remarks by several; inspirational music by an exteremly talented vocal group; and keynote speaker. Then the 3rd year students are called up, one by one, and stand across the front. The 1st years, are called up, one by one, to stand in front of a 3rd year, to receive their white coat.
Here are the before and after pictures. The speakers had talked about the significance of the white coat. I'm sure all the parents there were just as proud as I was...



This is the PA class of 2011


Then...time for photos and refreshments.

I wouldn't have missed this night for the world!

Oh my goodness, that had to be an exciting night!

It's really hard to imagine the 'kids' being any more proud and thrilled than their parents were!
