It is an honor and a privilege to present to you a new class of Eckerd College Students!
The class of 2010 come from 42 states and 9 countries and bring with them strength of character, unique talents and many accomplishments.
There are individuals in this class who have overcome enormous obstacles to be here - from overcoming a severe disability - to the tragic and recent loss of a loved one.
Some have climbed mountains - and all survived taking the SAT - in some cases - multiple times.
And there are individuals in this class who have already achieved amazing academic and community service accolades - from earning recognition as a National Merit finalist - to participating in several mission trips to developing countries.
This is indeed a group of students who will contribute to the Eckerd community in a most positive way.
I look forward to watching each of them become a valued member of our community.
Students please rise.
It is with great pride, that I present the class of 2010!
