“These stories are what shape your identity,” added Griffith, “and your identity is what shapes your life, and overall your college experience is now a significant part of your identity.”

The students were followed by Lillian Gomez, executive director of Title V Initiatives at Adams State, who delivered the commencement address.

“No matter how much you have and will accomplish, there is always more to learn and there is always more to achieve,” Gomez told the graduating class. “It’s not time to rest on your accomplishments. Your developed work is yet to come.”
