This is terrific news, and congrats to all the graduates and the GWF team on a job well done in historically challenging times!!!

Much appreciated Paul.

💯!! My two have had a rough, but so far successful pandemic school-wise. My oldest decided to take a well-timed break and rethink what they want to study. It’s been probably most difficult on my youngest who ended her junior if high school and is now coming to the end of her senior year – all virtually. Not what she imagined it all to be like, but the resilience she has demonstrated has been amazing. I’m most astonished with their ability to adapt to these very challenging times and still persevere with mostly joy! Reading your post reinforced the universality of this!!

Ryan, So good to see the graduates and their smiles. Well deserved for all of them. Congrats! Keep up the hard work.
