Cue the show tune, “Sunrise, Sunset.” Quickly go the years indeed.
For the second time in our lives, elder son Kenny and I experienced a university graduation ceremony together. This time he wore the gown, and I was the one who didn’t cry and disturb the audience.
Kenny got his diploma in neuroscience from the University of Texas at Dallas Saturday.
Here’s an almost-decent photo I got as he flew across the stage:
At the bottom of the photo you can see a fellow in a UT-D green t-shirt — the official photographer of the day. Kenny’s elation showed so well, the photo that guy got turned up on UT-D’s website (photo #11 in the series).
[Update] Here’s the “official” photo of Kenny with UT-D’s President David Daniel.
Some time in his high school days Kenny got the idea that he’s responsible for his own education. At UT-D he took control of his time and learning. His graduation is his own doing.
Congratulations, Kenny. I have it on good authority your parents are beaming.
Nice cap to the year.
