Gov. Evers Congratulates Class of 2020 Graduates
MADISON — Gov. Tony Evers today congratulated the Class of 2020 on their graduation. Students and their friends, families, and supporters across Wisconsin are celebrating this important accomplishment but are unable to participate in traditional graduation ceremonies due to the COVID-19 pandemic. As folks continue to celebrate while staying safe, the governor offered his congratulations to the Class of 2020 and made a video for use in virtual ceremonies. The video is available here.

Hello Class of 2020! Governor Tony Evers here. 

Congratulations! I am thrilled to share in this special occasion with all of you. 

I know this year was a challenge. Many of you tackled your last few months of school from home, missing critical time with your friends, classmates, teammates, and teachers.

And while this semester is ending on a very different note than any of us could have predicted, that does not change the exceptionalism of this accomplishment.

You all worked hard for years to reach this point and I want you to know that we are proud of you and we celebrate you.

So on behalf of the state of Wisconsin, I wish you the best of luck in your future endeavors and congratulations, Class of 2020!
