Time to Celebrate!

Simply stated, graduation last Saturday was a magnificent event. The weather cooperated. The enthusiastic crowd of parents, family, and friends filled the tent. Faculty and senior speeches were perfect. Many students were recognized for outstanding achievement. The entire graduation ceremony, from processional to recessional, sped by in seventy short minutes. Of course, the luncheon buffet table was filled to overflowing with great food. The good-byes were emotional. And, before I knew it, the campus was empty and quiet – always a bittersweet ending after an incredible and immersive year of belonging, growing, and succeeding. Included with this posting are three documents – the full transcript of my comments throughout the graduation ceremony, the faculty speech by Neil Stone, and the senior speech by Ross Mesnick.
