See the Inspiring Video from Summer 2015 Commencement

Four amazing graduates who overcame everything from cerebral palsy to childhood predictions that “you’ll never go to college.” A mother who is proudly starting this school year as a brand-new fifth-grade teacher, her dream since she was in middle school. A master’s-educated nurse who used to aspire to be a truck driver until a compassionate healthcare worker changed her life.

The graduating Class of Summer 2015 is one amazing group of Night Owls—8,512-strong! In Salt Lake City on August 15, 2015, we celebrated their successes with our biggest commencement ceremony to date, and it was an outstanding one.

Did you miss it? Or were you there with us (physically or via online live-streaming) and now want to relive the inspiration? You’re in luck: Full video from the ceremony is available now! In fact, it’s right here:
