    I think "Don't stop", by Fleetwood Mac would be cool. Other songs like "Staying Alive", by the Bee Gee's; "Fly like an Eagle" by Steve Miller band and "Go where you wanna go" by the Mamas & The Papa's keeps popping into my head. I guess I'm in a seventies mood today

    We have decided to use Raven Simone's "This is my time" because we feel it really expresses what an accomplishment we have made.

    This Is My Time

    oh,
    at times I felt like I had lost my self
    cuz people try to make you someone else
    I had to learn to trust my heart
    so things can change

    I came to a point
    where I can speak my mind
    and not feel
    I'm living in a box
    to keep the girl I am concealed
    oh
    I finally found the strength so I can
    leave that all behind

    chorus:
    this is my time, to shine
    this is my place to find
    all that I have inside
    I never knew

    this is my time to show
    what I must have always known
    that nothings impossible
    and dreams come true

    everybody's got the strength inside
    all it takes is time to realize
    that you and only you
    can be the one to decide

    I can, I will, I know that everything I want
    I can do
    believing in my self
    then every wish I make will come true

    oh,
    it took a while to get this far
    but I'm here now

    chorus:
    this is my time, to shine
    this is my place to find
    all that I have inside
    I never knew

    this is my time to show
    what I must have always known
    that nothings impossible
    and dreams come true

    overcoming all these things
    here I finally found my wings
    now I know I'm ready to fly............

    chorus:
    this is my time, to shine
    this is my place to find
    all that I have inside
    I never knew

    this is my time to show
    what I must have always known
    that nothings impossible
    and dreams come true

    For the PPT presentation at my sister's graduation (not nursing school though), they played Billy Joel's "Time to Remember". I still love that song, and want it played at my graduation.

    ... Billy Joel's "Time to Remember"...
    This might be my favorite of those listed so far (with lyrics).

    But tend to think an instrumental may work better if there'll be presentations, addresses, awards, etc.
