"Each SEV student not only throws their cap to the air on commencement day, they move up to a higher level in life. With our 150-year-old values, we enjoy the privilege of being a lifelong learner by continuing to learn, share, add value, help each other, and have fun in this one grand "class." In other words, one does not graduate from SEV, one always remains a SEV member. "
