I’m graduating with a 3.9 GPA (Summa Cum Laude) , a member of the National Honor Society and Spanish Honor Society, a full scholarship to college plus an additional $14k from local scholarships to pursue a degree in pharmaceutical sciences.

Don’t EVER allow anyone to discourage you from being successful.



Now that I’m leaving and none of you can come crazy murder me on campus, I don’t mind telling you that I am a graduate of Northwestern University. I graduated with honors in history, with a minor in anthropology, and a 3.7 GPA.

Today is a day to be really proud. And, I am. 💜💜💜

Jeffrey Veregge

An  honor graduate from the Art Institute of Seattle, Jeffrey has had the privilege of studying with Tsimshian master carver David Boxley for a short time learning the basics of Salish form-line design. A member of the Port Gamble S’Klallam Tribe, he was raised and spent a majority of his life on a reservation known locally as Little Boston, which is located near Kingston, Washington. He says “My origins are not supernatural, nor have they been enhanced by radioactive spiders. I am simply a Native American artist and writer whose creative mantra in best summed up with a word from my tribe’s own language as: “taʔčaʔx̣ʷéʔtəŋ”, which means “get into trouble”.

Throwback Thursday — 1992 Marquette University Graduation:
Going through storage, I uncovered my Marquette University diploma cover, tassel and honors cords from 1992. The white tassel is for Marquette’s College of Arts and Sciences. The membership pin and cardinal red and black cords came from Sigma Tau Delta, the International English Honor Society. The gold cords represent my graduation honors.

It’s easy to feel hopeful on a beautiful day like today, but there will be dark days ahead of us too. There will be days where you feel all alone, and that’s when hope is needed most. No matter how buried it gets, or how lost you feel, you must promise me that you will hold on to hope. Keep it alive. We have to be greater than what we suffer. My wish for you is to become hope; people need that. And even if we fail, what better way is there to live? As we look around here today, at all of the people who helped make us who we are, I know it feels like we’re saying goodbye, but we will carry a piece of each other into everything that we do next, to remind us of who we are, and of who we’re meant to be.
