Jessica Graduates Boston U Cum Laude
What a great way to end this trip that seems to never end.
In poker, people often ask what percent is luck. It can’t be answered for many reasons, including great players position themselves to have more luck.
Pardon the analogy, but that is exactly what happened here. Allyn, always the planner, got to the u-shaped venue very early, picked a good series of seats, and then LUCKILY Jessica was seated exactly right in front on that particular aisle.
That was the “small 500 person ceremony” just for the School of Management.
Today U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder spoke to the school wide “big 4,000 person ceremony.”
His message wasn’t the usual bit about “allowing yourself to achieve.”
It was more about “In these times you have an obligation to be the best that you can be.”
He was very well received.
