Dear CSN Family,
Under normal circumstances, tonight would have been a celebration of our 2019-2020 graduates. And although we’ve postponed our official Commencement Ceremony, we don’t have to wait to celebrate the accomplishments of our amazing Class of 2020! CSN graduates: I am eager to see you all decked out in your blue caps and gowns, but for now, we will celebrate you online with a special Class of 2020 website we’ve created.
A semester ago, no one would have expected the challenges many of our incredible students have faced — and overcome. To all of our graduates, faculty, staff and returning students alike, please take a moment to visit www.csn.edu/2020class, where you will find our commencement program with a list of all graduates, information about this year’s honorary degree recipient and stories about some of our graduates, including a profile of our commencement speaker.
Our graduates are incredible — poised to continue their education at a four-year institution or join the workforce and make an immediate difference in our community. They’ll be healthcare professionals like Krista McFarling-Kelly, researchers like Silvio Ernesto Mirabal Torres and Ariana Thompson, or skilled workers in high-demand, challenging fields like Emily Hedwall. CSN’s Class of 2020 will achieve, succeed and prosper.
Each and every one of them is truly inspiring.
So, until we are able to safely gather together and celebrate them all in person, please visit the Class of 2020 website. There, you will find a link to a message board where I encourage everyone to pass along congratulations and well-wishes.
So once again, congratulations to the Class of 2020. May your hard work and persistence carry you far.
College of Southern Nevada
