To All of Our Graduates –

Congratulations! Your years of discovery, struggle, and determination have brought you here! We celebrate your accomplishments in the classroom and beyond. We love that you’ve shared your journey with us.

Soon you’ll be on to the next thing. On your path, speak your truth, take things on, read fat books, try new food, and take your time. You’ve got this!
