Class of 2011

   We left the State Park this morning and headed to Bloomington/Normal, Illinois for the 152nd commencement at Illinois State University.

                          Founded in 1857, this is Illinois’ first public university. 

The documents founding this institution were drafted by a young attorney named Abraham Lincoln.

One of our sons, Darrin, and his wife, Carrie, both graduated from here a few years ago, but today is Mark’s special day. 

                               This is our first grandchild to graduate from college.

 The look on his face in these pictures shows a happy, determined young man.

            With no dreary eyes or frown on his face, he looks confident and ready to go to me.

                                 Congratulations on a job well done

                          I like to get in a picture now and then myself.

One last look at the press box where Mark worked as a student videographer during his four years here.

Mark majored in Integrated Marketing Communications, is interviewing now, and awaits your job offer.
