To the Graduating Class of 2020

What a year this has been. I wish I could congratulate you in-person and on your campuses to celebrate alongside the teachers, families, and friends who supported you through this long journey to graduation. And while I cannot do that, I want you to know that the changes in this year’s celebration do not diminish your accomplishments in any way. I hope that you can find unique ways to celebrate your graduation with friends and families as this is such an important time in your life and warrants a celebration!

Graduation marks the culmination of all your hard work and preparation. But your journey is only just beginning. In the coming months and years, you will enter new classrooms, new work environments, and embrace new opportunities. These changes will not only be new because they are changes, but they will also be new because our world is rapidly changing in response to this virus.

And while that reality is filled with uncertainties that present feelings of fear and worry, my travels to schools across the state revealed the depth of passion for learning and teaching that is found within our classrooms. Over the last thirteen years, your teachers and schools poured their energy into preparing you for a world which they could not predict. In turn, you demonstrated incredible leadership and compassion in and out of the classroom. You are truly prepared to grow and lead in this unpredictable world.
