WMAC Special: Dr. Marco Clark '85 Shares Academic Regalia Tutorial

Dr. Marco Clark ’85 Shares his Academic Regalia Tutorial for WMAC

Have you ever wondered about the significance of all the different gowns and elements you see during graduation season?

One of the last things Dr. Marco Clark did before he left for his new role as Executive Director of the Holy Cross Institute was to get into his academic regalia and provide a quick tutorial into the meaning of various elements of academic dress. Senior Week and Graduation (which would have been this Friday 5/22) was always a special time for Dr. Clark and it meant a great deal to him to put on his gown one last time as Bishop McNamara High School President & CEO. This video is not just for the Mustang community but for anyone who has ever wanted the answer to the question ”What Does All That Stuff They Have On Mean?”

Videography by WMAC Nicky Zhang ‘20 and editing by Paul Kamara ‘21. Produced by WMAC Moderator & Emmy award-winning broadcaster, Mr. Lou Holder.
