Congratulations Graduates

Congratulations Graduates-052120

As semesters wrap up at schools across the country, graduates are facing the reality of not being able to celebrate in the fashion they’ve anticipated for years. While in-person graduation ceremonies and celebratory parties may have been canceled or postponed, Sigma Tau Delta would like to help you all celebrate these milestone achievements. As we announced in Footnotes and on social media, we will be collecting stories from members, Chapter Advisors, and English departments as they celebrate their graduates now through when many schools have rescheduled ceremonies in the fall. Please join us as we #CelebrateEnglish2020!

I thought this post would look a lot different this year, but here it goes! This department has contributed to my growth as a writer, a reader, a thinker, and a creator more than I would have ever anticipated. They make me feel smart 🙂 Simmons English Dept, I love you! #classof2020 #CelebrateEnglish2020
