Director Lisa Pluff Congratulates the Class of 2020

“We will all remember this year for your strength, your determination, and your remarkable ability to proceed and cross the finish line, in the face of so many challenges. We are all very proud of you, but most importantly, you should be proud of yourselves,” said Beyond Academics Director Lisa Pluff as she addressed the graduates. Through this program of study, students build independence, increase self-determination, gain skills for employment and careers, and become engaged citizens in our communities – a universal and shared aspiration among all college students and graduates.
