and for many of you the start of something new? At least having no class for a couple of weeks (if not months)! For those of you graduating today, best wishes and good fortune. I hope your time here has been a challenge - not as in difficult but in a reason to grow and stretch and discover new things. Learning is hard work! Congratulations on your accomplishment and persistence.
For those coming back in summer or fall, enjoy your time off. I hope you can come back to class with the desire and persistence so that next year you'll be walking across the stage at your graduation.
