In the final address before Whitman College’s Class of 2021 graduates walked across the stage to receive their diplomas, Commencement Speaker Jena Griswold ’06, Colorado Secretary of State, noted the unprecedented obstacles they’d faced and encouraged them to continue to push themselves and take risks:
“If you bet on yourself, all of those choices you make, all of those experiences you’ll have, will lead you to where you are intended to be. Create a good life with purpose and laughter. Leave your communities, our country, and our world in a better place than you found it.”
