North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper (D) was the commencement speaker and addressed the struggles students faced throughout the pandemic.
“I know you’ve had other challenges, for some of you it’s been sickness, for some caring for parents, for some caring for children, for some it is experiencing a death close to you, but now you are here and have made it,” he said. “You have plowed through the hardship.”
