Grandma and Grandpa sat in the front row of the Urban Studies Departmental graduation ceremony. Aunty Mary is giving Grandpa a Stanford cap to wear, while Aunty Carol and Aunty Sue look on.
The Urban Studies ceremony, held immediately after the main ceremony in the stadium, was very enjoyable, and took place under the cool shade of a nice big tree.
The ceremony was intimate enough that each student had their accomplishments acknowledged and families were given ample opportunity to take as many pictures as they wanted when the diplomas were presented by Associate Director Katherine Cushing and Director Len Ortolano. Naomi graduated Phi Beta Kappa and was the recipient of the Robert M. Golden Award in the Humanities for excellence in writing.
