High School Graduation

What happened? Just a couple years ago I was holding this guy in my arms, now look what happened: he just graduated from high school last night! This is our son, Paul Jerome, quite happy as he is shaking hands with the principal of his high school here in West County St. Louis. Because of his ACT score of 34 (two points shy of a perfect score), he received a full academic scholarship to Truman State University here in Missouri, where he will be headed off to college this coming August. He maintained a high-A average throughout high school, while maintaining a very full schedule of music, and being drum major for the marching band for two years. Can you tell I’m a proud dad? Yup, I am. And so his mother. I mean, she is a proud mother, not a proud dad. You know what I mean.

(Photo geeks: We were sitting in the top row of the bleachers in the arena where the graduation took place. Fortunately, we were on the right side for me to get this shot of Paul crossing the stage after receiving his diploma. This is a cropped image from the original taken with natural light, from about 250  feet away. Taken with the Canon 5D, with the 100-400 mm L IS lens, handheld. ISO 3200. Not too bad!)

    Congratulations! We’re many years away from that day as our daughter is just shy of six – but it will come soon enough!

    Mabruk! You should be very proud of him. That’s impressive.

    Congratulations to Paul and to his parents.
    34 on the ACT is spectacular!
    May God continue to bless Paul as He has blessed him.
