When I was a SGPS student the experience was both challenging and demanding. I can't imagine the extra stress these current times are adding to your graduation semester.

But what I do know is that the learning and personal growth you experienced as a SGPS participant gives you the foundational strength and perseverance to succeed against all odds. Your lifelong learning is a key attribute to positive results.

Your investment in yourself through your Rosemont education will provide you with the skills and attributes needed to overcome these obstacles. The finish line is close. You can do this! We are all pulling for you and proud of your tenacity and commitment. Best Wishes.

To all my seniors, I send my heartiest congratulations. Your hard work and dedication has not gone unnoticed. I'm sure this isn't how you envisioned things going, but your powers of adaptability and resiliency will serve you well, now and in the future.

I cannot thank you enough for everything you've done this semester. You've given me a sense of pride that, as a professor, isn't always easy to come by. So thank you. Wishing you all the best of luck!

I remember you coming to me and saying I’m thinking about going for my Masters degree! Should I? You asked. I said absolutely! You can do whatever you put your heart and brilliant mind to you will succeed!

I admire your fearless attitude! I admire your giving heart and the way you light any room you enter!
