The vital information to include in a graduation announcement is the graduate's name, the learning institution that the graduate is graduating from and where and when the graduation is to take place. A meaningful quote or story is appropriate to include in an announcement, as well as a brief biography of the graduate.
When naming the locale, the full address needs to be listed. If the ceremony is going to have different portions, such as a pinning ceremony, the starting times for each event are to be given.
If a biography is a part of the announcement, information concerning the graduate's activities, likes and accomplishments may be included. If he or she has any important plans after graduation, these can be provided.
