“Our December 2022 graduates have demonstrated tremendous grit during their time in the Enchanted Valley,” said Pierce. “They navigated the pandemic, took classes online and in de-densified classrooms, and faced challenges that few of their predecessors ever had to face. They have proven themselves both highly capable and immensely determined, and I cannot wait to see what they do next.”
