MADISON, Wis. (WMTV)-- Gov. Tony Evers congratulated the class of 2020 Friday as they make the transition to the next chapter in their lives.

According to a release from Gov. Evers:


Hello Class of 2020! Governor Tony Evers here.

Congratulations! I am thrilled to share in this special occasion with all of you.

I know this year was a challenge. Many of you tackled your last few months of school from home, missing critical time with your friends, classmates, teammates, and teachers.

And while this semester is ending on a very different note than any of us could have predicted, that does not change the exceptionalism of this accomplishment.

You all worked hard for years to reach this point and I want you to know that we are proud of you and we celebrate you.

So on behalf of the state of Wisconsin, I wish you the best of luck in your future endeavors and congratulations, Class of 2020!
