Congratulations to our grads!

We watched the Class of 2018 walk across the stage and accept their diplomas, and we were so sad to see them go.
Then, we thought of all the good these remarkable new graduates will work in the world. And we were so happy.
Good luck to all of you, regardless of where your path leads!
