With the sounds and sights of the 28th consecutive Project Graduation celebration still fresh in my memory, I write this letter of thanks to all the businesses and individuals whose generosity contributed to the joy and experiences of Commencement and Project Graduation for the MUHS Class of 2015. It was truly special and memorable.
