and significant contributions to the Jones Graduate School of Business. We’ll
recognize a student in each of the four programs. Sophia Campbell. Elizabeth Wang. Brady Gibson. Joanna Nathan. Because in life so often, we know that
the hard things and the good things are the same things and you know this to be
true. Think for a minute, just think in your head think of an accomplishment of
which you are truly proud. Was it easy? Of course it wasn’t. Think of the past

now complete.
