“Hello. On behalf of the Department of Mechanical Engineering, I would like to congratulate you on this great accomplishment. We are so proud of the hard work, resilience, and adversity you have overcome to finally get to graduation. This is a very important milestone in your life and you should be very proud of yourself, especially during this difficult time. We wish you the best of luck and great success in your future career. Please keep in touch and check back with us frequently. Thank you very much and Roll Tide.”

“We’re going to recognize you as the class who overcame tremendous adversity and we’re really, really proud of all that you’ve accomplished. The only thing that might touch how proud we are is the excitement we have to look forward and see those things you’re going to achieve in the future. Congratulations, stay in touch with us in the College of Engineering, and Roll Tide.” – Dr. Charles L. Karr, Dean of the College
