Graduation season is upon us and this is why I do what I do. The unpaid hours, the commitment to events and activities, time spent in the classroom, the advocacy with legislatures and the many nights laying awake wondering how to make a difference all comes down to this: Graduation! The Class of 2017 graduated on 6.16.17 and they did it in style just like you would expect, great speeches, selfies, song, dance, lots of hand gestures (in a good way) and the best part is when a board member gets to hand her son/daughter their diploma (Way to go Sabrina and Alex!). I had the honor and privilege of handing the High School diploma to three of my children and it is a moment in time I will never forget. Congratulations CHS Class of 2017!
