2: Dear Class of 2012, Congratulations on your graduation from high school! The time has come for you to leave high school and begin new adventures in the next stage in your life. You are well prepared to take on the challenges and enjoy your new ventures. You are a diverse group but have something important in common. You all are leaving Austine and going back to your home communities to join your families and the world of work. You will have different careers, but you will be part of the Deaf Community and also the large group of Austine graduates in Vermont and across the east coast. You will all be missed by those of us staying in Brattleboro, Vermont on the Austine campus. I’m sure you will be remembered by future graduates in stories told about the many good times they had with you during your years here. Best wishes, JD-Janet Dickinson, Director of Austine | To the Class of 2012, Your time at Austine is coming to an end. As I have gotten to know each of you, I have learned that you have something special to give to the world. And, Austine is a little richer for having you here. Take what you have learned here and experiences you have had and apply them for your success in the world. I know you can do it. Remember, Austine and the Vermont Center are here for you. You will always be a part of our family. We look forward to hearing about your accomplishments and hope you will come back to visit when you can. Congratulations, Bert Robert W. Carter President of VCDHH
