Another Gator Grad

Two sons: two Gator graduates in four months.

Our younger son walked for his Bachelor's degrees in August.

Yesterday, we again served as the proud parents, witnessing our older son receive his Master's degree in Science from the School of Forestry at the University of Florida.

The words on his graduation hat are reflective of the focus of his thesis in fire ecology.


He completed the research and the coursework in two years to the month. He really stayed focused and made excellent grades and we could not be more proud.

His undergraduate degree was earned at Florida State University here in Tallahassee. For the benefit of anyone outside our state, UF and FSU are serious rivals. We could not resist taking him garnet and gold flowers (FSU's colors)  to remind him of his roots, so to speak.

Congrats! But I'm not sure that FSU qualifies as a serious rival these days.

Actually, I think we are pretty well matched in most sports, just not football this year (and last year, and well, maybe the year before that....) But I think the Noles won the last basketball game!

As only a casual fan, I can say congratulations on a job well done.
I know he worked hard and that you must be very proud. I agree with his hat sign wholeheartedly.

UF and FSU are rivals?

Why wasn't I told about this?
