Graduation #143

‘Tis the season for graduations. As the mother of a high school senior, I join the families and schools across the state who are sending this year’s crop of graduates out into the world. What’s next for those who have turned the tassel? This week we are joined by Genevieve Morgan, Islandport editor and author of Undecided, Becki Smith, the former 207 Executive Producer and author of Starting Out: Life Lessons for Graduates, and Tim Sample, a widely acknowledged humorist who is a correspondent for CBS news Sunday Morning where he produced postcards for Maine segments.
