Congratulations on graduation Kassidy! I’m so proud of all your achievements and success. You’re an amazing woman and are truly an inspiration. Keep on shooting for the stars. Love you so much!

Kass!! Remember that time we went to go get ramen during our freshman year? That feels like a lifetime ago. It has been so awesome to watch you grow as a journalist — you’re doing amazing things already, and you’re only going up from here! Keep in touch. xox

My GIRL. We made it. From the moment we met I knew we’d be attached at the hip and I am so glad it’s stayed that way for three years. Thanks for being my journalism buddy, fellow transfer freak, my beauty queen, and my NYC adventure partner in crime. We’ve had the funniest memories together and I wouldn’t take them back for the world. Can’t wait to crash with you all the time next year when I visit NYC. 😉

I’ve been avoiding writing this because I knew it’d make me sad. Congratulations on graduating!! I don’t know how you managed to work multiple jobs, go to school, and be an amazing friend. BUT YOU DID IT SO WELL. You have inspired me in so many ways! I’m grateful for the experiences we have had because of King’s and I can’t wait to be back in NYC with you soon 🙂 love and miss you <3

Kass, this world isn’t ready for a dreamer like you. Because whatever you dream, you make sure they come alive in reality. Over the years, I’ve seen you blossom into the angel that you are, and I know that this is only the start. I am such a proud person to be able to call you my friend, and even more proud of all that you’ve achieved. NY has always been your dream, but only few people know the struggle and multiple jobs you’ve had to pull through to get here. I do, and I am in awe of your persistence and determination. TKC, and any other institution for that matter, are the privileged ones. Because a human like you, is definitely one of a kind.

Congratulations!!! We are so proud of you. You had a dream, followed that inspiration, and made it work. You are so talented, and we are so excited for you as you continue your journey. Adam and I will see you soon when you return to this coast.
Much love, Jackie and Adam

Congratulations Kass!!! Thanks for being such a great friend to Tatum!! We love you 😘

Congrats Kass! From one Nebraskan to another, I am so thankful to have met you and can’t wait to see your accomplishments! You amaze me and I’ll cherish our memories together! 🙂

I know you won’t forget this one: “Congress shall make no law … abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press.” All the best in your journalism career!

Kass! You are on your way! I’m so glad you transferred to TKC and put the time in to grow as a reporter and writer. Now, we ask you to stay in touch and serve as a mentor to new generations of JCS majors.
“Oh Lord, teach us to number our days so that we may present to you, a heart of wisdom.” – Psalm 90:12.

Congratulations on your graduation, Kass! May this be an exciting new season for you!!!
