I hope you realize the remarkable achievement of becoming a graduate. There is no doubt that Thomas More University has prepared you well to examine the ultimate meaning of life, your place in the world, and your responsibility to others. Commencement marks the opportunity for us to celebrate your notable achievement and it signifies that you have met all of the requirements for graduation. As you walk across the stage today, walk slowly, taking it all in and realizing that this graduation is a defining moment for both you and your family. 

Commencement is always one of my favorite academic traditions. My graduation day was one I’ll never forget. The sense of achievement and gratitude I felt as I walked across the stage that day was unsurpassed. I hope each of you are feeling the same, knowing that this community is proud of you and excited for the future you are going to pave with your new, well-earned degree. As you go out into the world, serving as great leaders in your future endeavors, I know that you will succeed because of the education and Saints Experience you’ve received here at Thomas More. You have made an impact on this campus, and now you are equipped to make an impact in our community and world. 

During your years at Thomas More, and especially throughout the past year, you have demonstrated a strong spirit of adaptability, and I am confident that the challenges we have faced together as a campus community will serve you well in your careers and personal lives. I encourage you to continue to inspire, be a trailblazer, and most importantly, stand up for what you believe in as did our patron saint Sir Thomas More. You will make a difference and you will always be a Saint. 

I am proud of you and congratulate you on this accomplishment today. 

God bless,
Joseph L. Chillo, LP.D.
