Michael was inducted into Beta Gamma Sigma earlier this evening. It is a National Honor Society for Collegiate Schools of Business.
Because of Michael's scholastic achievements, meaning a stellar G.P.A., he was invited to join and accepted! This organization states that membership within is..."the highest recognition a business student anywhere in the world can receive in a baccalaureate or post-baccalaureate program accredited by AACSB International - The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business".
I'm so proud of him. As the time has passed since he's gone back to grad school, we've realized more and more that it was the right decision for our family. And now we are finished in just over a week!
Funny story from the ceremony:
They were announcing names and handing out packets and cords (for graduation) and Michael was not called up. His name was on the program and everything, but his name was not called! All his friends turned around once the ceremony was over and looked at him like, "What?!?" Turns out, out of the huge list of names, they skipped/missed his name, and ONLY his name.
We talked to the powers that be afterwards and they seriously apologized. The lady that was calling out names said that she was afraid she would miss or skip over one out of that entire list...and she did. It was really funny actually. And it turned out to be a better deal because instead of a rushed photo with the presenter, we got a real "posed" shot. This just illustrates, once again, the fact that anything big and exciting in our lives never goes to plan. It's actually uncanny how that ALWAYS happens to us.
Here's a picture of the two of us. Sorry it's blurry but it's the best we could do. I still think it's cute.
This is Michael and his friend Ben. Ben's wife and family couldn't be there for the ceremony so I took some pictures of him and some with "the boys". It was fun.
All in all, I'm proud of Michael. He's so smart, driven, and just an all around good guy. Guess you could say I'm pretty lucky. Yeah, I know it.
