Congratulations Class of 2021! I am very pleased to have this opportunity to celebrate your graduation with you and your family. I wish the circumstances were different and would allow us to be together in person today. Since that isn’t possible, I hope that you will celebrate with those who you’re with right now – and those who you wish you could be with. I am so proud of you all!
This month marks a significant transition in your lives – from student to graduate. Although your graduation day is different from how graduation days have been traditionally, I know you’ll face the future with courage. COVID-19, as tragic as it’s been, has also taught us many lessons and has built our resiliency. I think it has taught us greater compassion for ourselves and each other. It’s helped us to reflect on our values and what is truly important. It’s helped us to not take our connections with family and good friends for granted.
While many wish for things to get back to “normal”, it is my hope that we don’t forget the lessons we’ve learned throughout COVID and that you don’t let what's happened over the past 15 months define your future. Instead – go out and look for new possibilities and opportunities to make our community and the world better. You have that responsibility.
Please enjoy our virtual Graduation Ceremony with the following pre-recorded videos:
Tonight is a night to celebrate, to reflect, and to show appreciation for those who have helped you along your journey – those who have cared for you, inspired you, supported you when things were hard, picked you up, and helped you to become better students and better human beings. Let them know the impact that they’ve had on you, and think about the ways that you might be able to pay it forward, give back, and help others like they have helped you.
