She urged the graduates to find their own inner fire when their situations get tough.

In an interview with Sheridan Media before the graduation ceremonies, Crouse said excitement over the in-person graduation was really, really high this year.

Graduation ceremonies were canceled in 2020 because of the COVID-19 pandemic and resultant shutdown of activities across the state and nation.
