from Kurt Zalar
Congratulations on your graduation and the successful completion of the first chapter in your journey. You have done a remarkable job preparing for your next assignment. I know you will attack it with the same purpose and dedication you demonstrated the last four years. I want you to know that you did more than just pull outstanding grades and played on the soccer team. You demonstrated compassion through service to those that could to do for themselves. While I am proud of you for your performance in the classroom, I am more proud for your willingness to help and defend those that can’t. I know you will overcome whatever obstacle life throws at you and you will succeed in whatever you put your mind to.
