|My first UCO graduation, BA, English, Central State...Dad's handwriting|
We'll walk down the aisle in front of the students and their parents for what is the culmination of my career, a beginning of a new personal identity and a beginning of my students' new adventures.
I expect there will be a group photo of my colleagues beforehand. Afterward there will be photos outside with some favorite students.
There have been many such photos over the years. I still have many on my computer, but don't want to select one over the other. But.
This is what I have worked for...getting students to graduation and on their way.
In 27 years at UCO, there have been at least 55 such ceremonies --a couple of years we had three--but most years there are spring and fall events. I've only missed one or two.
Hundreds of students and memories. Not an ending, but...
