"I feel humbled to be speaking at the Graduate College master's degree ceremony this spring. My program has challenged me in many ways to develop into the best school counselor I can be -- and I know that everyone else has faced similarly high expectations in their own programs.

I greatly appreciate this opportunity to talk about our amazing accomplishments as we celebrate graduation and acknowledge everyone who has supported us throughout our graduate programs."
