Another year, and another graduation ceremony. Secretary of Navy, Ray Mabus was the commencement speaker this morning. I was pleased to see one of "my people" speaking for a change.
My colleague and co-researcher for the social justice study, Desiree.
My colleague, and soon-to-be co-researcher for an article on combining the new EPAS competency based curriculum with service learning, Jerry. Jerry taught me about "cultural cues" this morning, when I asked about the significance of the decoration on his regalia.
And, finally, I have managed to get a video to upload to blogger! I have long been a fan of bagpipes, and love that our School of Applied Sciences utilizes them. My mother's side of the family was Scottish, and I have our Scottish Coat of Arms for the McBrayers. My friends find it amusing that the family motto is "In defiance."
