Flagler College graduation: Class of 2012

I shot these photos at the April 21 graduation ceremony, held for the first time at the St. Augustine Amphitheatre. It was beautiful. It didn’t rain, as many people feared. The venue was a great stage for the 2012 graduates of Flagler College.
Florida Senate President Mike Haridopolos gave the commencement address. Flagler College President William T. Abare Jr. presented diplomas to nearly 400 students. It was the largest graduating class in the history of the college, founded in 1968.
