We are the 30-year-old harvest and the seed of a lifetime

For 30 years, EARTH has sown seeds of hope for the world, and the Class of 2020 is the fruition of those seeds. In the face of every graduate, we see courage, resilience, and endless shared memories. Over four years, we have watched them grow and become leaders of change. We have seen how they have put their effort and dedication into every course, every project, and every one of their goals. We have seen them fight to achieve their dreams and stay resilient in times of crisis, when the world undergoes abrupt changes and needs, more than ever, leaders like them.

The Class of 2020 confirms the promise that one who sows, receives. We are certain that our graduates are already sowing their own seeds of hope and that they will impact their communities in the best way possible. We trust in their abilities, in the knowledge they have acquired, and their desire to fight, resist, create, and inspire others.

Today we celebrate all that they are and applaud all that they have become. We know that they will accomplish great things and will hold EARTH forever in their hearts.
