News and Events for the week of June 14

Good Monday Morning, 

Thank you to everyone that assisted in our Virtual Graduation last week. I am very proud of all of our graduates, faculty, and staff. The Cinema-TV group, under the leadership of Jen Vaughn, put together an amazing virtual graduation. I am sure there was nothing like it among all of the virtual graduations this year.
