The most wonderful day of your life

It was my privilege to witness and participate in Dominican University graduation ceremonies yesterday.

Our student speakers inspired me. Our honorary degree recipients… transcendent.

Some students, walking on stage to receive their degrees, I could see that they wanted to be too cool for school.

Some were happy but unsure.

Some let their joy spill all over the stage and pour into the audience, washing over their family and friends.

I loved every minute of it.

(Special thanks to our name-readers, letting the cheers for one graduate subside so we could all hear the name of the next graduate. This day was special for everyone involved.)

Congratulations graduates!

Let this wonderful day set the stage for many more.

And let’s stay in touch!

See you tomorrow!
