Tribute to Mom

                    

This is probably the same poster hung around campus back when my mom went there...

 
My mom has decided to go back to school! She earned her associate's degree from BYU before she got married, but never went any further. As a BYU alumni, she found out she's eligible for a special online program to earn her bachelor's, and she's decided to take it on! I'm so proud of my mother! I've always known she was brilliantly smart, but now she'll have the degree behind her to prove it. At just over 50, she'll be earning her degree in General Studies with an emphasis in Family History. She's always been the biggest genealogy nut I know, so it's perfect for her! She's helped a ton of people with their genealogy, and she's also helped people find lost loved ones when they had no luck themselves! She looks forward to doing it, perhaps, as a part-time job. She gets the biggest kick out of it all and truly loves the work! More power to you, Mom!

Go Cougars!
