Over the last few years, the Southern New Hampshire University (SNHU) bus has traveled across the country delivering diplomas to students, in celebration of their success. While the bus is not currently on tour, it did make a special stop at Goffstown (N.H.) High School on Dec. 12, to deliver diplomas to 25 local teachers who recently earned their master's degrees in education (M.Ed).

All of the graduates, ranging from elementary, middle and high school teachers in Goffstown School District, earned their degrees together, through a graduate leadership cohort program with SNHU.

As part of the celebration, the there was a formal hooding ceremony, where each graduate received their Master of Education hood and diploma, dressed in cap and gown. Many students invited family members to participate in the ceremony, who had the opportunity to place the hood on their loved ones.

"The hooding ceremony and placing of the hood signifies, in education, the passage from student to master," said SNHU School of Education Dean Ray McNulty. "This recognition of (the students') accomplishment draws attention to scholarly and personal achievements that (each of the graduates) have had to make to reach this point."

SNHU's School of Education's On-Site Graduate Leadership Cohort Program works with local schools to help educators earn their M.Ed at a discounted rate. This is the sixth cohort to complete the program.
