The Graduate

Art | June 25, 2008 | By

Kelly Winters, MBA

If you’ve been wondering where the art was this past week … here’s the reason for the hiatus. We just got back from Chicago for the graduation of our daughter from Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University.

Needless to say we couldn’t be prouder of her accomplishments. Not only did she learn lots but she was so active in service to her school that she received the Dean’s Service Award. From managing the school newspaper to being a creative director for the school play to mentoring first year students and leading a trip to Dubai (to name just a few of her activities) – she made a contribution, made lifelong friends and made lots of memories.

Congratulations, Kelly! Your future is as glowing as you were last Saturday!

    Sending a virtual hug to you at this happy time. You weren’t too far away from where I am, only 100 miles south.

    That’s a happy gal, and ddeservedly so. There’s no greater blessing in this life than when our children turn out well. Course now I worry a bit about my grandchildren!
    Congratulations to you and her. What a commendable and impressive record of achievements. They should serve her well.
    If I were you, I’d employ her as my business manager!

    I’m so thrilled for all of you! I remember when she was accepted into the program and how proud you were then—it seems, literally, like yesterday. Look at that gorgeous smile! I’ll bet the twin of it is on your face.
    Congratulations, felicitations!
