Our seniors are graduating on Friday, May 18, and although we are sad to see them go, we wish them the best of luck in the future. Many of our soon-to-be graduates already have jobs lined up. Some will be traveling near, and some far. Either way, we know they will go out and make a difference in the world.

To our graduating seniors: Don't forget Simmons when you leave this place, and please keep us updated with what's happening in your life. Like us on Facebook, Follow us on Twitter, and join the alumnae/i network to keep in touch. Best of luck and congratulations!
