It Happened on March 19th

this is as good as these photos get inside TCC.Your Monday Photo Shoot: Show off a graduation ceremony of someone you know and love. Kids, parents, spouses, friends -- even yours. Show off that cap and gown and diploma that says "you made it!"

Thanks for making it an easy one!  It helps, because I've got to go back to the office tonight.

I have only really bad pictures from the commencement ceremony itself, taken by John with my digital camera, and by Dad with his digital camera.  (The one shown here was one of Dad's.) They were a fair distance away, both cameras were new, and Tucson Convention Center wasn't all that well lit.  But here's a brief film John made, and here are some digital photos taken immediately afterward.

University of Phoenix still hasn't sent my real diploma, because I have yet to fill out a financial aid exit interview form.  Everyone at the ceremony got a note on parchment paper saying that a diploma would be sent once the University determined that the student had met all eligibility requirements, including paying the diploma fee.

One of my goals was to graduate in my dad's lifetime.

Oh, by the way, I have no photos whatsoever of any other graduation by anyone anywhere.

Time to go back to work!
