Before we get too carried away with fun ideas, first check with your school to ensure they will allow decorations. Harvey, Louisiana has been voted 2017 “best of” beaches and hotels. Make it best graduates and best graduations too! Your cap has great historical significance; some believe the mortarboard was formed from the biretta, a similar-looking hat worn by clergymen, of the Roman Catholic faith. Another theory is that the cap resembles a tool used by masons to lay concrete and was first used in the 14th and 15th centuries – and was worn by artists and students to imply power and intellect. Either way, this cap represents you now. Make it special.
