“We are very excited and proud to be hosting the graduation ceremony again this year,” said USRowing events coordinator James Rawson. “The support and appreciation for last year’s event proved how important this event is to our athletes and their families. This year, we are nearing our capacity of a thousand seniors, family members and teammates. We encourage everyone to make sure they sign up as soon as possible to ensure that they have a seat.”

Seniors will be honored in a 30-minute ceremony and receive a USRowing Certificate of Excellence. Alongside Hack will be Scholastic Honor Roll Representatives from the Princeton National Rowing Association, Eileen Hu and Kathryn Miller.
