Katie R Speech ImageCongratulations, class of 2018! You have no idea how excited and, moreover, honored I am to be able to say a few words to you on your graduation day!‌ This is my absolute favorite day of the year. This is actually the first time ever that I haven’t been sitting out there with my partner in crime, Prof. Kelli Hiller, screaming and cheering and taking photos of all of our students, like a proud mom. And I have five kids at home, so you know I must really like you guys if I still get that excited.
