As I read the names at graduation a few weeks ago, I was delighted to see so many ESL students graduating from Sacred Heart with their Bachelors and Graduate degrees. I have so many memories of these students arriving 4 years ago, with little or no English. And now look at them. I am so proud of them all. Many had difficulties adjusting to American culture, finding good restaurants, or figuring out the laundry facilities in their new buildings. But they persevered and as a result they graduated. Many had families in attendance who traveled from so far away to see the ceremony of graduation. The stands were filled with good cheer and smiles. It was a great pleasure to be part of the biggest celebration of the year. Congratulations to everyone.
