Senior Timothy Andrews, third honors, began his remarks by asking what people saw as they looked at the class of 2014 graduates. Looking over the sea of white and maroon caps and gowns, Andrews said he sees opportunity emerging. Recapping years of hard work and achievements, he asked the class to savor the day.
Taking the time to thank the people who invested in them, Andrews urged his classmates to invest in others and make it the start of something bigger.
“On my own I am ordinary, I fall somewhere in the middle,” Collimore said. “On the whole, this class falls somewhere around extraordinary.”
“Frankly, I can’t be sure they’re true,” Flanders said. “At this point the prologue is all we know.”
“Our lives are about to change and we need to adapt accordingly,” he said.
They have gained a knack for knowing how to adapt over the last four years, Flanders said. A diverse group of athletes, artists, scholars and others have formed a tight-knit community, he said. Through shared experiences he said they have grown and matured together.
The class spilled out into the arena after the ceremony to celebrate with family members.
“It’s scary, but good,” McKenzie said about graduating. “It’s kind of overwhelming.”
