Congratulations to the Class of 2019!


On Saturday, June 1, at the College of Physicians and Surgeons, more than
200 family, friends, teachers, staff, Board members, along with US Ambassador
H.E. Stephanie Sullivan, witnessed the Class of 2019 receive their well deserved
diplomas. LCS proudly graduated 49 students from 23 nations. It was a deeply
personalized, student-centered, emotional event that will be long
remembered.

Every LCS graduate involved in the ceremony brought out the emotion of the day
and were exceptional. These 2019 graduates made an impact on their classmates
and the entire audience, physically and virtually present. Valedictorian, Darlene
Sam, Salutatorian, Tom Lewy, and student speaker, Carolyn Akua Asante-Dartey
shared deeply personal words of thanks and thoughtful memories of their
classmates and their personal experiences as Lincoln Learners.

From the first note of the Ghanaian National Anthem sung by Samira Yeo, to the
final note of the original song "Last Day" written and performed by Emily Msolla,
strong emotions were ignited. Both performances were powerful and flawlessly
executed.

Graduates filed out of the auditorium to the upbeat rhythm of "September" by Earth,
Wind and Fire, which brought a satisfying closing to the afternoon ceremony. "Our
hearts were ringing/In the key that our souls were singing." Good luck, LCS Class of
2019!

Stay well. Keep your hearts ringing and your souls singing.
