Congratulations Spring 2020 Graduates
COVID-19 may have prevented us from hosting our regular commencement exercises, but it’s not going to keep us from celebrating our spring 2020 graduates.
Letter from President John S. Tanner
I congratulate you on graduating from Brigham Young University–Hawaii. This is a remarkable achievement! I only wish that I could celebrate it with you in person. I love campus commencements: the formal ceremony, the inspiring speakers, shaking your hands as you walk across the stage, meeting your families and friends, and especially seeing graduates laden with colorful leis, sometimes up to their eyes. I shall miss all this, as I know you will, too.
I invite you back if you choose to walk at our next in-person commencement. Since we know that this will not be possible for most of you, we have prepared a commencement program with your name in it to commemorate this educational milestone and an online commencement presentation.
You go forth with our love and aloha. I hope you will take with you many sweet memories that savor of Zion.
John S. Tanner
Brigham Young University–Hawaii
