Saturday, May 7th, my husband Mike received his undergraduate degree in History with a minor in Portuguese. He walked in the main university commencement ceremony in the morning and in the College of Humanities and Social Sciences commencement in the afternoon.
In between ceremonies his mother, Trina, hosted a lunch at her house for him and everyone that went to the morning ceremony. We are all very proud of everything he has accomplished. A big "Thank You!" goes out to all the friends and family that have supported Mike while he was going to school!
Here are some photos from the big day. These are the ones from my old junky camera, I will post better photos when I get copies from his parents and his grandparents. I used his grandmother's camera to get the photos of his name being called and them handing him is degree.
