“Commencement is a milestone that represents the successful completion of a great deal of hard work. For you, the process has been especially challenging.
Your perseverance during a global pandemic that forced you into isolation, and during the deep social unrest that has gripped this nation, is testament to your character and strength.
Your efforts have paid off with a degree from one of America’s top 10 public universities and from one of the most elite journalism and communication programs in the nation.
On behalf of the faculty and staff of CJC to all of you, well done and congratulations! ”
