It’s A Done Deal

graduationToday I received a final communication from someone with whom I have had almost constant contact with for the past 2 years. Dr. Richard Rose, my faculty adviser from WTAMU, sent me word that I had passed the final course necessary to complete the curriculum for my Masters of Education degree. I will (on December 17th 2016 for anyone interested in buying a graduation gift :)) graduate with a Masters of Education in Instructional Design and Technology from the West Texas A&M University in Canyon, TX (although my graduation ceremony will be the first time I have ever set foot on the campus).  Needless to say it has been an interesting journey, made all the more so by the length of time that has passed from when I started my educational career until this point when I have reached, at least for the moment, a stopping place.  I began my formal education in 1969 in Lovington, NM at the Parkview Elementary School.  47 years later…here I am.  Possibly the most important thing that I have learned in all that time I will share now.  Don’t ever stop learning.  You are never too old.  Just wanted to share that.  It is not very profound or poetical but I believe there is truth in it.
