Welcome and Introductions

Thank you so much. Thank you, President Fitts, Provost Forman, distinguished faculty, the entire Tulane family, and most importantly, you. Thank you, graduating class of 2022. Thank you. Bow down.

And a very special congrats to Dr. Picard, General Berger, and of course the legendary Hank Aaron on being honored for their outstanding legacies and contributions to society. Thank you so much. Congratulations. And it’s an even bigger honor and the highlight of my experience right now, to this day, to talk to right now, future icon, Dr. Ledet. Thank you for inspiring me on this day, my favorite part of this experience.
