One Down, One To Go!

Skye will graduate in June with a double master's in Public Policy (M.P.P) and Business Administration (M.B.A). Needless to say, he is one hard worker. Last year, he completed all of his coursework for the public policy degree and has been working on his thesis document, while getting his M.B.A. Well, last Friday, Skye defended his thesis for his public policy master's and did a great job! Skye's dad drove over from Burns, and Skye's sister, Sheryden, also came to support him. My parents and Justin flew in town Thursday night for Justin's wedding and timing worked out perfect for them to watch Skye's defense. Skye presented for almost an hour in front of his thesis committee, other teachers, family, and quite a few classmates. He worked so, so hard to complete his thesis document and is very relieved to have it behind him now. After his presentation, we all walked around campus and waited for about an hour and a half as Skye had his oral exam with his commitee.
Luckily, it was a beautiful day.
