Every year, many of the students who volunteer to be on our project during June and July knowingly choose to miss their graduation ceremonies at their home institutions. We very much appreciate their dedication to the project and know that sometimes parents and family members are sad that they miss this important event.
To make up for it each year we host a small garden party for all team members to celebrate the graduates. This year we had seven people graduating with BA, BS, MA, and PhD degrees from Wellesley College (2), University of Victoria (2), Michigan State, Villanova, and UCLA.
We are vey proud of their accomplishments and their dedication to our project. Below are just a few photos from the party.
