Cap And Gown Swag: Celebrities Cheesing It Up In Their Throwback Graduation Photos

May 16, 2013 ‐ By Clarke Gail Baines

We all have those extra cheesy graduation photos don’t we? You know the ones. Posing next to the year of our graduation. Holding on to roses and laying our faces on our hands. Looking back on them now, I think we all cringe. But back in the day, they made us proud. Same goes for celebrities. Here are a few celebs looking very happy and accomplished as they graduated from middle school, high school and college.

Dwyane Wade 13

Before he was a NBA champion and star dating Gabrielle Union and wearing capri Gucci pants, Wade was another kid from the South Side of Chicago with hoop dreams who idolized Michael Jordan. I would predict that this graduation photo was from middle school/junior high since he looks so young. He’s come so far hasn’t he? And thankfully he also grew into those ears.
