Graduates in Arizona may be missing the traditional ceremony they long planned for, but they'll still be able to get dozens of commencement speeches, they so deserve.

More than forty speakers took part in the Virtual Graduation Project: Speeches to Inspire Arizona's Future Leaders. They include state, city and community leaders, along with everyday Arizonans who want to share their wisdom and well-wishes with the Class of 2020.

"How do we look at our future going forward? You're going to see those themes of resiliency and courage and understanding self, and a variety of other themes come through all of the speeches and they're vastly different," said Rhonda Bannard, who produced the project.
