We held Spring Convocation yesterday, and it was a wonderful opportunity to celebrate the accomplishments of the scholars in our Educational Technology family! I love Convocation — really love it. I think it is the energy in the room. Parents, spouses, kids, friends, colleagues — all gathered to do one thing: cheer for someone they care about who has completed a major milestone. It’s also a place to celebrate the ideal of the university, one of the few abiding institutions across history and culture.
Graduating today and receiving a Master of Education Degree in our program were Jason Benson, Nelson Dordelly, Kent Muench, and Jon Yellowlees. All of these people are fine scholars — I can vouch for every one of them, and we’re quite proud to have them as alumni of our program.
