  • I am so proud of our graduating class of 2020. Everyone knows the spring semester was a tremendous challenge. Time and time again, I saw you rise to the occasion - and usually with good humor too. Owls never quit, and we help each other out. Way to go!

  • I celebrate with you all as I started my freshman year at Temple in 1981 and then became Miss America in 1983. In that 39 year span I had a wonderful career and raised a family. I also wanted to walk across that stage to show my children it's never too late to complete a dream. Just BELIEVE!

  • You all have worked diligently in preparing for this moment as you worked around the clock studying, volunteering, participating in athletics, and most recently dealing with the life changes of a pandemic as you remain focused . Much deserved!!! Salute to the CLASS OF 2020!!!
