As summer storms tore through the rest of our area our little campus remained dry, cool and just sunny enough to reflect the mood of our graduates. It is the perfect celebration of a truly remarkable community. After such a sad week we all needed this. I am so thankful.

Later tonight I will celebrate my birthday (a few weeks early) with my soon-to-be in-laws. It’s a good day when the most important question I answer is, “Where would you like to go for dinner?”
