Stole of Gratitude

Stole of Gratitude

The Stole of Gratitude is a way for graduates to demonstrate their appreciation for those who helped turn the dream of a college education into reality at the commencement ceremony.

The Stole of Gratitude is worn during the commencement ceremony. After graduation the new graduate presents the stole to someone who provided them help and support through their college career. Multiple stoles can be worn to show appreciation for many supporters.

Stoles of Gratitude are often decorated. Graduates write a few words of love and appreciation on the stole using a permanent marker. Friends and family can also sign the stole.
