May 11, 2021

WILMINGTON, Del. – Today, U.S. Sen. Chris Coons (D-Del.) released a video message [] to the Class of 2021. In the address, Coons urges graduates to appreciate the challenges they’ve overcome in the past year and embrace their successes as they begin future endeavors.


Sen. Coons: Congratulations, Class of 2021. You’ve worked tremendously hard, and now it’s time to celebrate your successes. I know this has been a year of tough transitions, but I urge you to look back not just at the challenges but at how you’ve developed and how you’ve navigated through this time of change. Think of how prepared you are for the future, and as you move forward in life or choose to continue studies, look back on the past year and remember how strong you are. You’ve stood in unity, even when physically separate, to face the incredible challenges of this past year. I’ve said before that change happens on all levels in our society, so your actions as individuals have had a more significant impact than you may think. So, to everyone who’s graduating this year across our state of Delaware, congratulations, and good luck on the next steps in your journey.
