First Photo: Getting close in a pouring rain as “Pomp and Circumstance” plays, University of Hawaii-Manoa nursing honors graduates Elizabeth Cunningham (right) and Aristina Ora-a don’t let the weather dampen their mood during the start of Thursday’s graduation ceremonies at the University of Hawaii Maui College.

Second Photo: Besides providing a little cover from the rain, UH-Maui College graduate Casey Mattos finds his mortarboard graduation cap is also a good place to advertise for a new job.
