I need to begin this Spotlight with an apology. Tighe’s, Spotlight was published earlier but contained some incorrect information. The original post included responses from another student and some of Tighe’s original words. I want to apologize to Tighe and his family for that mistake and make it right by issuing this new/updated post. We do our best to honor our seniors and let them know how important and remarkable they are, but sadly sometimes, we make a mistake. Without further adieu, please take a moment to learn more about Tighe and his plans for the future.
