Earlier this month, the School for Science and Math at Vanderbilt held its fourth commencement.

Cheryl Mayes, chair of the Metro Nashville Public School Board, was a distinguished guest and speaker. In addition, Doug Christiansen, Ph.D. and Vanderbilt’s vice provost for enrollment and dean of admissions gave the commencement address posed the question to the graduates, “What will you choose?”
