Madison, James Madison- We are the Dukes of JMU.
Tonight, as thousands of us packed the Convo center, we shared tears, hugs, smiles and laughs. I never thought moments of hardship would be be the moments that helped me to love this school more than I already did.
A very special moment for me was when Art Dean reminded us all that we ARE JMU and that WE CARE.
Katie, Jackson, Nick, Kristen, John, Rob, and Jane would be proud to see the community they have inspired. Together you have reminded the world of what it means to be a JMU Duke, and what it means to bleed purple.
We are JMU. We are All Together One. We Are the Dukes of JMU.
