A message to the graduates:

This graduation is a unique and memorable experience because of the circumstances through which you have had to come to get to this point. The skills that you have developed, however, as a result of learning and living in a pandemic are skills that will make you stronger, smarter, and more adaptable in your future. The skills of communication, flexibility, patience, grace, kindness, cooperation, empathy, hard work, engagement, being proactive, and inclusiveness will allow you to do anything you set your mind to. I have confidence that you will set your minds to doing the right thing, not just for yourself but for those around you, and that will make the world a better place.


—Love, Mrs. Hansen …(please see below to view all of the graduates’ photographs)
