“It takes courage to grow up and become who you really are.”
~ e.e. cummings
Last month as I watched my son graduate from Michigan Tech receiving his degree in mechanical engineering, I was reminded of his journey to this moment. If you met Jake for the first time today you would meet an optimistic, social, and outgoing guy. For Jake, life is a “Hey, let’s go rock climbing” kind of adventure. If you met Jake as a Kindergarten student you would have met a shy boy who hid from crowds and avoided the spotlight and anything unknown. Jake’s journey from then to now began at Japhet.
Next week we will celebrate the graduation of five Japhet students. They have shared with us their sense of justice, curiosity, and joy. We have shared with them a solid foundation on which they can build their futures. Graduation at Japhet is more than a celebration of their academic successes. It is a celebration of the people they have become. Celebrate with us on Friday, June 10, at 11 AM and see not only the difference Japhet has made in their lives but the difference they have made in ours.
