Congratulations Graduate!

We are so proud of our daughter, Rachel, who is now an official college graduate!
This past weekend she graduated from the University of New Haven - with a Bachelor's Degree in Music Industry with a Business Management Minor. She is hoping to land a full time job in the music industry working with music contracts, property rights, venue management, or tour management. She eventually hopes to attend law school and become an entertainment lawyer.

In case you are wondering: The Blue Stole is for studying abroad, the Green one (underneath the Blue) is for participating in the internship program while attending college, the Blue and Yellow cords were for being an Resident Assistant (RA), and the Yellow and White cords were for graduating Cum Laude.

Great job Rachel!  You have worked so hard and achieved so much!

Many congratulations to you!
We are so very proud of you and your accomplishments and wish you all the best!
The world is your oyster!! *

* THE WORLD IS AN (ONE'S) OYSTER - The proverb first appears in Shakespeare's play 'The Merry Wives of Windsor' (1600) Act II, Scene II.

Falstaff: I will not lend thee a penny.
Pistol: Why, then, the world's mine oyster, Which I with sword will open.'

In other words... The world is yours for the taking; and the oyster holds a pearl of great value!
