Metal Detecting

Master’s Complete

For the past four years, I have been working on my master’s degree at St. Norbert College, 30 years from the time I received my undergraduate degree. It was like having a part-time job and there were times I asked myself what I was doing, but I learned a great deal and I am glad I stuck with it.

There’s a long story behind me walking on stage and receiving my diploma from president Kunkel. Sometime, I will have to share it with you.
