The culmination of life learning experiences that build character.

Three desk figures side by side: Precious Moments of a blonde boy holding a baby duck with a mother duck standing next to him; a red headed girl in pigtails wearing a graduation cap and gown holding open a large book, while sitting on a blanket on top of very large books in a circle; Ruth Bader Ginsburg standing ornament holding gavel, white gloves, and wearing judge gown with white laced collar.
