On May 17, 2020, more than three thousand degrees conferred to UVM’s Class of 2020. This may not have been the spring send-off they anticipated—an online conferral of degrees to be followed by an in-person commencement ceremony at a date TBD—but for these six grads, this moment is a bittersweet bump in their roads, well-traveled with courage, grit, and the support of many. During these unparalleled times, their journeys remind us that while no two paths to a diploma are ever quite the same, no one makes it there alone.
