Odyssey Graduation

Congratulations to the Class of 2020!

Odyssey made history on May 6th with its heartbreaking but joyous online graduation ceremony. This event included over 200 virtual guests that ranged from Odyssey faculty and staff, graduating students’ families and friends, and other community members and Odyssey supporters. A special thank you to Patrick Sims, UW’s Deputy Vice Chancellor for Diversity and Inclusion, Vice Provost, and Chief Diversity Officer, for being our keynote speaker and sharing with the students that you truly can do whatever you put your mind to. His piece left both students and guests inspired.

As the evening continued, it was filled with “pride, community, and love” as people from all around the world gathered to show their support and cheer on the graduating Odyssey class.

We’ve also included a link to our special-edition graduation Oracle that includes each student and what they read during the ceremony. You won’t want to miss any of it!
