|After the ceremony at UCO...time for family, friends, loved ones, lots of smiles and hugs|
So here are some photos of the people who matter, plus a few from my last class and Vista two weeks ago. And yes, the hugs matter.
|Jade Braun, quirky, creative|
My joy has been in earning the respect of them all. Some I've had in several classes, some only one or two. On graduation day, I get to meet husbands, wives, boyfriends, girlfriends, parents, grandparents on graduation. They matter.
|Misty Jordan, Christian and smiling|
|Jake Searock, U.S. Army Afghanistan vet|
|Megan Prather, who wants to work for AP|
|Pam Todd, a leader in every class|
|Mark Zimmerman, friend and colleague before ceremony|
|Moose Tyler, creative dynamo and colleague|
|Last class, International Media|
|Jennifer Byrd, a professional|
|"Sam"atha Marcus, spunky and serious|
|Evonne Wong, Malaysian coffee drinker|
|The Vista at Hideaway, my treat, and honor|
Graduation from @okieprof's seat, with Jennifer Byrd getting diploma
