The weather has finally started to change in Oregon! There’s always a distinct time when you can walk outside, take a deep breath, and smell spring in the air. Don’t forget your umbrella though; it’s going to rain in twenty minutes!
Although we are sad to see them go, we are incredibly proud of the accomplishments of our graduates. They have contributed greatly in their time with us and we are excited to send them off. In honor of their graduation, we want to highlight their accomplishments and future plans:
