Yesterday I graduated with a Master of Engineering degree from the University of Virginia. As I listened to the commencement speakers, there was a theme that kept coming up of how we couldn’t have done it alone. The support we received has allowed us to enroll and succeed in this Master’s program. I thought of you and your coaching in the way you helped me to turn thoughts into actions. I know that without your guidance I may not have ever found the time or desire to get a Master’s and I am very sure that if I did enroll I wouldn’t have graduated this quickly. Now that I have learned so much and completed my degree I am excited to spend more time with friends and family. I feel well prepared in my professional life for any doors that open for me in the future. I wanted to send you a note to say thank you. Thank you for your patience, guidance, wisdom, and practicality. I hope you are doing well, and thank you again.
