The Class of 2020... you are unforgettable and forever in our hearts. Beyond your indomitable spirit and many talents, we will remember your persistence and resilience. Afterall, you graduated in the most unsettled of times–on June 6, 2020–amid a global pandemic and national protests!
In addition to being social justice advocates, you are filmmakers, scientists, artists, philanthropists, musicians, mathematicians, entrepreneurs, gamers, classicists, environmentalists, dancers, journalists, engineers, designers, social scientists, actors, journalists, data analysts, world travelers, and quarantine warriors! We will miss you. We celebrate your diversity in all its forms–culture, race, religion, gender expression, and intellectualism. We celebrate your heart.
Our world needs you now more than ever, so here’s to the Class of 2020!
