Congratulations on this momentous occasion!
On behalf of the University of Washington Speech & Hearing Sciences Department, I extend my deepest congratulations and best wishes to each and every one of our graduates and your families. We are extremely proud of all of you! Your graduation is an amazing accomplishment and one you should take great pride in achieving. You are graduating at a turning point in history that we will all remember.
We all wish that we could be together in-person to honor your accomplishments and to give you the send-off you deserve. However, this virtual graduation is a sign of our times. We hope that in spite of that reality, you know how proud we are of you and how much you mean to our department. We can't wait to see the positive force you will all be in this rapidly changing world.
Congratulations, Class of 2021!
