We are so proud of your achievements! There are some small tokens that accompany these honors, but we have agreed to wait till we have a suitable opportunity to present them to you in person.
Speaking of which, we look forward to celebrating all of you with your friends and family this fall (a private gathering in the department on Friday, October 23, and commencement on Saturday, October 24).
We have had the distinct privilege of serving as your faculty, and your disappointment at not being able to complete this journey as planned, no doubt, just edges out our own at not being able to share that moment with you. But yours will be the first “off-schedule” graduation in Mary Washington history, and we pledge to make that moment truly special and worthy of your effort and sacrifice.
