Summer 2020 - Once of the strangest summers in memory as we continue to adapt amid both health and social crises. However we would be remiss if we didn't celebrate our 2020 graduates:

* Congratulations to Courtney who completed her MS in Materials Science, and is off to Los Alamos National Laboratory.

* Congratulations to Daisy who completed her undergraduate degree and if off to CU-Boulder for graduate school this fall, we'll try not to hold it against her.

* Congratulations to Will for successfully defending his PhD thesis proposal.

* Gavin is taking a hiatus this summer and interning with Intel (virtually), before returning in the Fall.

* Be well and appreciate the things that matter.
