Spring 2014 Guild School Graduates – What a handsome (and well educated) bunch!
Is that a Flash Mob?
Kinda. Minutes before our Spring Graduation ceremony started, we asked a roomful of high-spirited Guild students and faculty to march outside for a quick Class Photo. Most of the room jumped up, swarmed down the corridor and out the door. Lots of laughter. Lined ’em up. Boom-boom went the iPhone. They all streamed back and through the door by 7:04 am.
