Reflections from Graduation

"Go, Mom! You're my hero!"

Monday, May 20, 2013

Commencement 2013Spring and fall commencement are my two favorite days of the year. Not just because I enjoy seeing the culmination of each student's hard work, but because I enjoy seeing the sense of pride on the faces of the students' friends and families.

For JBU Degree Completion students, completing a bachelor's degree is often a family endeavor. It's not unusual for students to tell us that they're finishing because they want to show their kids that education is important, or that they want a better life for their growing families.

I love watching children cheering for their moms and dads as they watch them get those hard-earned diplomas. This year, one daughter enthusiastically yelled, "Go, Mom! You're my hero!" when her mother's name was called to receive her diploma.

Congratulations to the 101 heroes who finished their bachelor's degrees on May 4. May your commitment to education inspire your family and friends.
