Congratulations on your graduation from Penn State! This is a great milestone in your life. You worked hard to get here, as I witnessed it firsthand in our senior classes. This is your moment, and it must be celebrated.
It is not supposed to be this way for your graduation weekend. We miss being able to be with you in your graduation ceremony, and tell you in person how proud we are of your accomplishments. This is yet another testament to your courage and resilience, and of all what was required to get here. Your teachers, your family, and friends are very proud of you.
Best of luck! I wish you every success and will continue to cheer you on wherever life takes you.
Your teacher and friend,
