(Lander, Wyo.) – Earlier Saturday morning, Wyoming Catholic College graduated its third class inside of Holy Rosary Catholic Church.

Outgoing senior Travis Dziad, originally from South Carolina, gave this year’s senior address. His speech both prodded his classmates with laughter and emphasized the fear of what’s to come now that they are graduated. He said this was the first time his family had been able to visit, and they were getting to meet his 32 brothers and sisters.

“Our education here has been just such a beautiful thing,” Dziad said, later adding, “We have not merely been given an education. We have been given a life.”
