Congratulations Class of 2020!
Congratulations Class of 2020!

Dear LR students, faculty and staff—

This week, we would normally celebrate the Class of 2020 on our three campuses. It is one of my favorite weeks of the year as we come together with friends and families to acknowledge this momentous occasion and the culmination of hard work and determination.

Of course, there is very little that is normal about our lives right now and, unfortunately, the campus celebration of this moment will have to wait. We look forward to hosting a commencement ceremony for the Class of 2020 in August or September and hope to have a date and plans solidified in the next few weeks.

To help honor the Class of 2020, the Office of Marketing and Communications has created a video—with the help of some of our 2020 graduates.

I hope you enjoy it and that it helps make today special. I look forward to celebrating this very special class in person as soon as we can.

Fred Whitt
