Grandparents bragging rights ....

We are very proud of our grandson, Zac Pearson, who on Sunday graduated with a master’s degree in Science (Medical Physics) from the University of Kentucky.

We drove to Lexington to attend the ceremony where a huge crowd in the Rupp Arena, home of the University of Kentucky Wildcats, applauded and relished seeing their family member walk across the stage to receive a diploma. Rupp Arena is located in the downtown area of Lexington and seats 23,500. Most of those seats in the lower levels were occupied.

Over the weekend, there were four graduation ceremonies for the thousands of students.

The sea of blue caps and gowns was composed of an international group of students. Both men and women were represented in all the colleges.
