“Start by doing what's necessary, then do what's possible;
suddenly you are doing the impossible.” - St. Francis of Assisi
Class of 2020, it’s time you know the truth: this is probably not an actual quote from St. Francis. However, it is certainly in the Franciscan spirit that we strive to be our best - the most loving, charitable versions of ourselves. We’ve seen you do just that throughout your time at Neumann and we are so proud! We have no doubt that you are off to do the impossible. Congratulations!
