Maryville University

As one of the earliest commencements in the season, Maryville University became the first virtual commencement for spring 2020. Our company handled diploma fulfillment and created custom graduate landing pages for graduates. 


Eastern Washington University

Fogarty Services produced 3,700 individual web pages for the university, while receiving nearly 40,000 congratulatory media submissions from the EWU community participating in the virtual commencement. We also helped ship 3,700 “graduation packages” that included diploma covers, custom printing, special edition newspaper, confetti sticks and other promotional items from the university. All items shipped in tandem with variable data-specific printing and shipping — timed to the rollout of the 3,700 individual web pages. FSI warehouse staff and web staff fulfilled, managed and quality controlled this process in-house.

Parkway School District

Fogarty Services created 1,385 unique Senior Celebration web pages for graduates across five high schools in spring 2020. Parents, family, faculty and friends uploaded custom congratulatory content in the form of videos, photos and text messages that launched to each student on their original graduation date. Common content for each high school displayed at the top of each student’s page, such as remarks from the superintendent and principal, with the custom content below that.

By summer 2020, the district canceled the postponed commencement ceremonies, and Fogarty Services recorded every graduation speaker for all five schools over the span of two days. Our video editing staff created virtual ceremonies for each school over a weekend to meet an accelerated deadline. Ceremonies included speeches from staff, board of education members, students and a full roll call of graduates’ names featuring their photo alongside a personalized diploma with their name on it in a slide show format.

Columbia University School of Nursing

Columbia University School of Nursing reached out to us in order to help conduct their White Coat Ceremony this winter.  We were able to deliver the perfect ceremony by blending pre-recorded segments and live interaction with students.  This allowed us to provide the experience the students expected and the polished product the school requited.  It was a pleasure to work with them to help achieve the fulfilment of their dreams.

Thanks to the whole Commencement Reimagined team for producing a lovely student event for Columbia Nursing! It was a wonderful first virtual student ceremony for our school. A special thank you to Josh Robinson, who worked very closely with my team. Josh answered our (many) questions along the way, and his responsiveness and availability to talk through any concerns was much appreciated. It was a pleasure to work with all CR members –  they made our vision for the event feel easy, manageable, and ultimately possible!
