Good evening, graduates, faculty, and family. It’s an honor to be standing on this stage tonight, with the opportunity to speak to you all, but at the same time it’s very surreal. Everyone tells me that it won’t sink in that we’ve graduated for a few weeks, when we wake up and realize that we’re never coming back here.

Family road trips are an important piece of our heritage, so it’s likely that most of us have a special road trip tucked away as a favorite childhood memory. Mine was a summer jaunt to visit family in Lake Stevens, Wash. Endless “license plate game” and “cyclops” hours later, and we arrived at our first main stop — Redwood National Park. As I unfolded myself out of our station wagon, I’ll never forget my jaw-dropping awe as I peered to look up at these giant trees kissing the sky. Although we camped only a night among the canopies of these behemoths, it’s that part of the two-week trip that was forever etched in my memory. As an adult and parent, state and national parks remain a favorite; there’s something about the unspoiled beauty and beckoning adventure that makes everyone feel like a kid.
