Alexis graduates Summa Cum Laude

Good Morning! What a glorious weekend in San Francisco...watching my niece, Alexis graduate from SFU. We were all just bursting with pride. There were approximately 8000 graduates & probably 30,000-40,000 people in attendance. We went from the ceremony to her Humanities dept for a little reception. We were able to meet some of her professors. How nice it is when one of her professors tells my sister "Your daughter is smarter than most people I work with!" I know she has given those professors a run for their money & you could just tell how much respect they hold for this very bright young woman. What a positively amazing group!
I am posting pics this morning of Alexis with her Mom & one with her Dad also.
I am still tingling from all the excitement! HAPPY TUESDAY!
