Firstly, "Welcome" to this "FamilySearch" ( "GetStaisfaction" ) 'Feedback' Forum.
Secondly, "Official 'FamilySearch' Representatives", do monitor; and, sometimes, participate in, this Forum.
Thirdly, I am just another User/Patron, just like yourself (and, happen to be a Member of the Church).
Many Users/Patrons who regularly participate in this Forum who have a great deal of knowledge and experience with "FamilySearch", like to assist/help other Users/Patrons like yourself.
Finally, there are MANY significant "Events" that could be listed for an individual/person; and, we all have our own ideas as to what is and what is not significant.
The problem/issue is, where do you 'draw the line' as to what is (and, is not) considered a 'Generic' significant 'Event'!
As you, personally, consider "Graduation" as a significant "Event", you can add such as a "Custom Event", under the sub-section of "Events", under the section of "Other Information".
The problem/issue with a having a 'Generic' significant 'Event' even such as, "Graduation", is that there are MANY forms of "Graduation" throughout our life.
I would suggest that, if one wants to add an "Event" such as some sort of "Graduation"; then, that is best handled as a "Custom Event", under the sub-section of "Events", under the section of "Other Information".
Just my thoughts.
