Quote from LSSU Interim President Dr. Lynn G. Gillette: “Lake Superior State University’s 61st commencement ceremony celebrates the knowledge, practical skills, and inner strength that our 300-plus graduates developed as Lakers to craft a life of meaningful employment, personal fulfillment, and generosity of self while enhancing the quality of life of the Great Lakes region and beyond. They represent the best of the next generation and of our innovation-driven, transformative education across academic disciplines. We congratulate them for reaching the milestone of earning a bachelor’s degree, associate degree, or certificate—and their parents and families for supporting them in pursuit of this achievement. We also salute commencement speaker Whitney Gravelle, president of the executive council of the Bay Mills Indian Community, who inspires not only for her tireless advocacy of Indigenous communities but also for her enduring partnership with Lake Stake.”
