This photo of one of the legends of sports, not just basketball, was recently posted on FaceBook. I thought it worthy to use as the basis for a blog post.
It made me think of two of my Spaulding Group colleagues who recently completed degrees part-time, which isn't an easy thing to do. It requires perseverance, drive, patience, a willingness to push forward, a commitment to spend time studying and attending classes rather than doing some fun things, the ability to keep motivated for a fairly long stretch of time, and the desire to succeed. Having earned two master's degrees (and now completing my doctorate) this way, I know first hand what it's about.
I congratulate my younger son, Douglas, who earned his MFA in Creative Writing from Farleigh Dickinson University and Jessica Laffey, who earned her Bachelor's in Criminal Justice from Caldwell College. Two great performances!
