Graduation matters, Montana! All across the state, students are walking across the stage to receive their diploma and celebrating this significant milestone with their families and friends. As state superintendent, I have the privilege to share in several graduation celebrations. This year, I will speak at Rocky Boy's high school graduation after being invited by two students who serve on my Student Advisory Board. These two young leaders started a peer mentoring program to improve their school's graduation rate, and both are going to attend college.

I will also address the graduates of Miles Community College, which was recently recognized as one of the top 120 community colleges in the country. Miles Community College is working hard to ensure their programs prepare students to meet the workforce needs of their community and to provide opportunities for those already working to improve their skills so they can advance in their careers.
