For our soon-to-be graduates, congratulations and well done! At Commencement, 612
of you are receiving degrees and 74 of you are receiving certificates. Take pride
in this culmination of hard work and constant focus. And the potent words of Jane
Goodall seem as applicable to imminent grads as to brand-new students: "What you do
makes a difference, and you have to decide what kind of difference you want to make."
