Congratulations Ethan!! The Class of 2020 Graduation is undeniably unique! It’s unfortunate that you and your friends cannot celebrate this special milestone in more traditional ways. Yet don’t let that diminish the significance of this moment. You have come so incredibly far since we helped you move into your first dorm room four years ago. Thank you so much to Hillary Cahn and to the Suffield Academy community for being such an amazing, nurturing place for Ethan to grow and develop as a young man. In the spirit expressed last night by the Commencement speaker, Sarah Finnie Robinson, living through this moment in this unusual and challenging way has silver linings many of which we may not understand for years to come. Ethan, it has given me deep appreciation for you, for everything you have accomplished, for everything that makes you you, and it makes me truly grateful for these wonderful formative years you’ve spent on Bell Hill. So proud of you!!! Very excited for your next chapter in Montana! Bozeman and Big Sky, look out!!

You deserved more and I’m heartbroken for you. Hold your memories of Suffield close but remember that you’re about to start an even bigger, better adventure. Learn from this experience and no matter what you do next, do it to the best of your abilities. Take every opportunity offered to you and have no regrets. There is always a silver lining, let your newfound appreciation for your health, friendships, and the freedom to do whatever you wish be the silver lining in these unprecedented and scary times. I wish you every success and happiness in the next stage of your life. Stay safe, be true to yourself, grow, learn everything you can, and make Suffield proud.
