Thank you to all who made this an exciting new adventure!

Never, ever, would I have imagined that we would be planning something COMPLETELY different than what, traditionally, Graduation looks like. But, then again, I never, ever would have thought that I would live to witness a pandemic! It took MANY hands, creative thinking, and more prayers than I can count but we pulled off an incredible event. 

Mrs. Dempsey, Mr. Skretting, and Mr. Vercillo: for their patience, courage, leadership, and time. All of this would not have been possible without you. From distributing over 200 Convocation Boxes, to arranging for a digital prayer service, to reading all the grad statements, you just filled in all the holes!
