Commencement 2021

Saturday, May 29, 2021 at 2:00 pm

A Virtual Commencement Event!

COVID-19 continues to change how we celebrate our graduates. This year we once again had a video-cast, but this time, rather than photos of the graduates, we included video of students receiving their diploma which was done in advance. Together but separate, we celebrated their accomplishments via a virtual commencement with all the “pomp and circumstance” that they deserved.

Congratulations to the Class of 2021 Graduates!
