Graduate Recognition Appearance Standards and Rehearsal

If you are going to participate in the Recognition, you and your parents must be in the auditorium by 2:30 PM on Saturday for a brief rehearsal. Upon arrival please check-in at the Conference registration table.

Our goal in setting forth these guidelines is to provide guidance as we all strive to be good stewards in regard to our personal Christian testimony and that of NCHEA. The goal of the NCHEA Graduate Recognition is to bring honor to God for the work that He has done in the lives of home educating families. We request that the dress of the graduates reflect Christian modesty and that it does not distract or detract from this important occasion. Please follow the guidelines below when selecting your attire. If you have any questions, please contact Kathleen Lenzen at 402-423-4297.
