    I thought I would share something happy. Our son is graduating from the ITT Technical Institute with an AAS (it is actually called an NSA because of the field his degreee is in) in Computer Network Administration on June 11, 2015.

    He got his final grades and total GPA this morning. He worked full time and went to school full time for the 21 month program. His is graduating with a GPA of 3.83. We think that is a tremendous accomplishment.

    Needless to say, my wife and I are overjoyed and so proud. Here is a picture of our son in his cap and gown he just got and his rehearsal the other night: He will wear a nice outfit underneath on the night of his graduation ceremony.

    Our eldest son officially graduated from ITT Tech tonight with high honors - GPA 3.83. He is considering continuing his education in the near future with ITT Tech's online program that will get him a Bachelor's Degree in Computer Project Management.

    We are very thrilled ad so proud.

    Thank you so much, Cookie. My wife and I are bursting with pride.

    He enrolled for the Bachelor's Degree in Project Management program at ITT Tech today. It will be another 21 months and additional loans, but he will receive an even larger scholarship than for the AAS because of his high GPA. It is an all on-line program with deadlines that begins this Monday, 6/15/15. His ultimate goal is a Phd in Computer Science.

    He was looking for jobs utilizing his AAS in Computer Network Administration, but was offered a promotion to Assistant Manager at his current job at 7-Eleven and will take the test for that next week and the store manager will begin training him. This will be mostly days, no more than 40 hours per week, a significant pay increase plus benefits like health care. All of this will look excellent on his resume and he will ultimately go far in the Information Technology field.
