Congrats, Graduates!

Today is your day.
You’re off to Great Places!
You’re off and away!

You have brains in your head.
You have feet in your shoes.
You can steer yourself 
any direction you choose.
You’re on your own. And you know what you know.
And YOU are the guy who’ll decide where to go.

Oh, the Places You’ll Go! by Dr. Seuss

Thousands of seniors across Utah are graduating from high school this month. Among those students, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Utah have 30 Littles in our programs that are graduating as well. We would like to send a special congratulations to them and let them know how proud they should be of their big accomplishment.

Everyone knows that high school is hard. Between maintaining friendships, dating, and extracurricular activities, making your education a priority can be difficult. We hope that the encouragement and support from their Bigs has helped make life a little easier and a lot more fun.

In celebration of our graduating Littles and their Bigs, we held our annual Spring Fling event at the Falls Event Center in Salt Lake City. With the catering provided by Rodizio Grill and Starbucks and the desserts provided by Fresh Market and City Cakes, we were able to spotlight our graduates and present them with certificates and best wishes.

If you know a high school graduate, be sure to congratulate them on this important and significant milestone and give them the best advice on life that you can offer!
