Teacher Prep Graduate and Transfer Celebration
Attention TPI Graduating and/or Transferring Members:
We know this semester was not what any of us intended it to be, and for those of you who were planning to participate in Commencement this June, these are particularly difficult days. While we still do not know what the college is planning for graduation ceremonies, Teacher Prep wants to provide an opportunity for your accomplishments to be celebrated! We want to feature a digital photo and a SHORT bio of those who were planning on participating in commencement this June. We will share these on our TPI Social Media Platforms – Instagram and Facebook.
If you would like to participate, simply do the following: 
1) Select a digital photo of yourself (perhaps even in your Mt. SAC or transfer institution regalia, if you have it) 
2) Write a SHORT bio (no more than 25 words) that includes your name and your future plans
3) Place your bio in an email and attach your digital photo, and send to Veronica Baeza:
Once we have your items, we will begin posting daily on our platforms (IG & FB). Each student for whom material is received will be featured on our two platforms, simultaneously throughout this month (May) and the month of June. 

We think your accomplishments are worthy of celebration and this is just a small way for us to recognize you. We hope you will participate!
NOTE: Deadline to submit photo and bio is Thursday, June 11, 2020 before 12:00 p.m.
