Dear Members of the Class of 2008,
This is a time like no other in you life! A four-month period framed by recognition programs, commencement exercises, and graduation parties, and punctuated with celebratory hugs, photographs with friends and pledged promises of "I will always remember you!' It is a time that marks the end of childhood and the beginning of adulthood. It is a time that leads you to reminisce about the past, but encourages you to look forward to the future. It is a time that fills you with a sense of accomplishment and energizes you with a feeling that anything is possible. It is a time that you have dreamed about for years, and now, it is here.
