USJ Highlights

Headnotes: May 2024- Commencement

I am honored to be here with you and feel a special bond that comes from years of experiencing this journey with you. I have had the privilege of knowing most of you since you were in 5th grade, and consider it a pleasure to be first, your middle school director and, for the past four years, head of school. Along the way, I have shared much with you, and today I leave with you what I hope is five minutes of straight talk that may be a source of encouragement and offered truly for your benefit.
