My fellow graduates,

On June 24, our alumni association celebrated the accomplishments of 3,983 students who successfully completed their Georgian programs, and I know that each of you joins me in offering our sincere congratulations to these new Georgian alumni who overcame many challenges to achieve their credentials this year.

I’d also like to extend my gratitude, and the gratefulness of the students who were helped by your generous commitment of time and financial support throughout their academic journeys. Many of you have supported financial awards and scholarships that have helped to bring students to the finish line, while others have stepped up to provide mentor support and advice through virtual discussion panels and one-on-one conversation. Thank you.

There’s another way you can help. We’re looking for Georgian alumni to become proud social media influencers. It’s simple! All you need to do is follow us on the Georgian Alumni Network and our social media channels, and share our content with your followers using the hashtag #ProudGeorgianGrad. Every share will enter you into our monthly draw for great prizes.

Georgian alumni are a family, and our family just got bigger! To the graduating class of 2021 – welcome to your alumni association.

And to our 90,000 proud Georgian graduates around the world – have a great summer.

Warmest regards,
