Three current and/or former students of mine will not be participating in this Thursday's graduation exercises.
One will not graduate. He came by to assure me today that he's getting his stuff together by going to a junior college and will eventually become a Highway Patrolman.
Another will not graduate. His parents want him to have another year of high school eligibility for basketball, presumably so colleges can have another look.
A third will graduate but will not go through the ceremony because of his participation in some inappropriate activity.
They'll all be OK.
