This academic year’s ending was unique in many ways due to the pandemic… it was surprising, hard, and special as it made us think of new ways of doing things….. As I reflect, I find that this is the life in front of you…. sometimes hard… sometimes surprising, but if you focus on what possibilities it can bring to you… your life will be full of positive promises and enjoyable as you will always find new ways of pushing ahead and making the best of your situation for yourself, your communities and humanity in general.
Go out there and make the world a better place as I am sure you will!
With best wishes for all of you the Class of 2020 Mechanical Engineering at Lassonde,
