This post is almost a month late but I want to take a minute to tell you how proud I am of Dane and Jen. Being the stellar, brainy, hardworking people they are, both graduated magna cum laude. Dane received the Carl R. Brown Memorial Scholarship, “awarded on the basis of good character, scholastic ability, and literary achievement, with preference given to a student majoring in English who gives evidence of a distinguished career in this field.”
My dearest Jena and her son Kai made the trip with us. After Dane finished his march across the stage with diploma in hand Kai asked, “Does this mean Morgan’s brother has to get a job?” HA! I was unable to get photos of our favorite Hiram graduates together in their cap and gown because the sky opened up and flooded us out immediately after the ceremony. Fortunately the weather was perfect up until the very end.
Uncle Lawrence made the trip all the way from Texas. It was so wonderful seeing him and Owen getting the chance to meet another member of his family.
