A MESSAGE FROM PRESIDENT JAN CERVELLI
To the Class of 2017 and Families and Friends,
Thank you for your patience and understanding as we navigated the difficult weather conditions that affected today's Commencement. We closely monitored the forecast in hopes of holding the ceremony outdoors, as scheduled, to allow the maximum number of family members and friends to be a part of the occasion. The weather did not cooperate as expected, but we are grateful that your goodwill ensured that a festive atmosphere prevailed for our graduating Belles.
We add our gratitude to you for not allowing the rain to dampen the joyful spirit of this special day.
