Congratulations Sis

Four years ago my middle sister, Beth, started her Freshman year at Clarion University. I was a Senior at IUP and we shared many phone calls that year…Beth would tell me about all of her college “firsts” as I shared with her all of my college “lasts.” It was a great time in both of our lives…and it is hard to believe that as of today she is officially a COLLEGE GRADUATE! Beth just graduated from Clarion University a few short hours ago with her undergraduate degree in Speech Pathology and Audiology.

Proud is an understatement. I can’t even describe how happy I am for her. She has worked so hard for everything in her life, and I couldn’t be more proud to be her big sister! Beth will be working this summer and then heading back to her Alma Mater to pursue her Master’s Degree to become a SLP (Speech Language Pathologist) this fall.

Congratulations! We all love you very much! I know that I speak for everyone when I say that we can’t wait to watch you graduate again in just a few short years with your Master’s degree. Time will fly…in fact…Beth will actually graduate with her Master’s degree before I finish mine. I guess that’s what happens when I am not a full-time student (I am so thankful I have a full time teaching job) but that’s okay…someday soon I will again be graduating as well. Our littlest sister Julie will also be graduating from Clarion in a few years. She is studying to be an Athletic Trainer.

Successful sisters? We think to think so! I could keep writing, but pictures are worth so many words, so without further adieu…

 The place where it all went down 🙂
 My two little sisters!
 Beth with my Dad and Step-Mom!
 Beth and her Brother-in-Law, Kev!
 Beth with our Grandparents!
Three sisters!
 Beth with our Mom!
The pictures don’t lie…this was a great day and we were all full of smiles. Congratulations again, Beth! We all love you so much and are so very proud of you! Oh, the places you’ll go…
Congratulations!
Today is your day.
You’re off to Great Places!
You’re off and away!

You have brains in your head.
You have feet in your shoes.
You can steer yourself
any direction you choose.
You’re on your own. And you know what you know.
And YOU are the guy who’ll decide where to go.

– From “Oh, the Places You’ll Go!” by Dr. Seuss
