Ostash ‘graduation a major milestone’

Ostash ‘graduation a major milestone’In speaking to the 2021 Burroughs graduates, Dr. David Ostash said, “Graduation is an event that we all consider a major milestone. We could all choose to view this time of pandemic as a milestone.  More time will pass, and this crazy, challenging, difficult year you just survived will end up being a moment that you frequently recall, reflect upon, and help see where you stand in life.

My hope is that in the future, when you’re far away from this time of pandemic, you will look back and realize that you found, new identified strength about yourself, appreciation and humility for when times aren’t especially challenging, empathy for those who do face challenges, resilience for working through tough times, a better sense of perspective and priorities for what matters most, love and devotion for family and friends.

You have so much opportunity as you prepare to take your next step into the future.  I wish you success next year in whatever the next step in your life journey may be.

Remember, graduation is definitely a milestone, an accomplishment worthy to celebrate.  It is also your moment to reflect on where you stand in life, and where you want to go in your future.”

Ostash announced last week plans for the 2021 school year.

Sierra Sands plans to welcome back all students on August 10 for a full day, on-campus instruction. He looks forward to reconnecting with students and community with all of the academic, co-curricular and extra-curricular programs and activities.

Information will soon be announced about summer school opportunities.
