Celebration

As a huge college football and UGA fan, it was exciting to see a UGA program-record three football stars, Roquan Smith, Isaiah Wynn, and Sony Michel, selected in the first round of the recent National Football League draft. What a fantastic accomplishment for these student athletes, deserving of celebration by the Bulldog Nation.

Of course, on this Commencement week, we celebrate many more students—indeed 5,834 new UGA graduates—who will also take on amazing new opportunities, in every field and locations across Georgia and around the world. While most will enjoy less fanfare this week than our football heroes, their achievements are no less highlight-worthy, and they deserve every available means of our celebration. Our graduates have clearly shown the dedication, know-how, and resilience to make a true difference in the world, and I can’t wait to see what comes next for them all. They are first round draft picks in the game of life, and I am so incredibly proud of them. May we all join in congratulations!
