  • Remembering those who gave all

    On Monday, our nation will pause as it has for more than 150 years to remember and pay tribute to those who gave their lives protecting our nation.

  • Strive for greatness graduates

    As our 2016 graduates walk across the stage, I want to take a moment to congratulate them for their hard work and accomplishments.
