Hey all,

Just wanted to share this past Saturday, I attended my doctoral graduation. I received my doctorate in Education in Higher Education Leadership from Sam Houston State University.

So glad to be finished with this process.

Do you need some help?


Seriously, congrats on your PhD! Takes a lot of work. I've watched several people over the years earn theirs. They sacrificed much. But I look at how they live today,... Happy!

If she desires a higher level administrator type position, it can't hurt. But, caution her about not having a life for a number of years. No more vacations, no more free weekends, etc.
