“There have been many obstacles along the way. We experienced the adjustment of life during the pandemic and the readjustment to go back to in-person. Throughout all of it, I think we all became the best version of ourselves. We are thinkers, problem-solvers, dreamers and doers.  As we move on to our next steps, it is important to thank those who helped us be successful Seahawks: our amazing faculty, our families and the friends we made along the way. I want to encourage everyone to hold onto these connections as you continue in your life as a forever Seahawk.”
