Mulrooney, ScottCongratulations to all MMG graduates! I want to express my appreciation for all the hard work you have done to get you to this point. For our faculty, staff, and TAs, commencement is the happiest day of the year. Even though we are unable to celebrate together, you should pause, take a few moments to recognize the accomplishments you have achieved, the unusual stresses you have overcome and applaud yourself and the loved ones that have supported you through your college years. I wish you the best of luck in the future. Go Green!
