Let's hear it for the graduating class of 2022! Congratulations to all of you on a job well done. School is already challenging, but trying to manage your classes through a few hurricanes, a winter storm, a flood, and a global pandemic is especially difficult. Somehow you made it through and all that hard work and perseverance is getting ready to pay off.
