Dr. Jackie Rice
Dean, School of Graduate Studies

I want to congratulate you on your accomplishments, on this amazing achievement of completing your graduate program, and moving on to the next stage of your life. I wish very much that instead of sitting here at my desk, I was sitting on the stage waiting to congratulate you in person, but it is not to be. I know you will continue both to thrive in wherever you end up and to build upon the knowledge and experiences you gained here at the university. I wish you all the best as you move forward!

Dr. Helen Kelly
