Time for some braggin’!
This beautiful woman is incredible. She’s an amazing wife, mom, daughter, sister, and friend. She does so much for so many and is generous with her time, encouragement, and gifts.
When we got married, she attended and received her Master’s degree in Social Work from the prestigious Brown School of Social Work at Washington University in St. Louis. At the time, it was the top school of Social Work in the country!
A few years ago we began thinking about “next steps” for Ben. As one of the ways to prepare for that, Jen went back to school; this time all online. (A vastly different experience from when she received her last degree in 1993!) During this time, she helped me start a new position, move us, saw our eldest graduate and marry (during a pandemic), move themselves, get Ben acclimated to a new school/home/church/life, volunteer at a Pregnancy Center, and deal with me! This Sunday, May 15, she will receive her second Master’s degree. Specifically, a Master of Arts in Nonprofit Management (MANPM) from this highly ranked program at the University of Houston Downtown! Not only that, but she has been informed by the chair of the Department of Social Sciences that she is the recipient of the Nonprofit Academic Excellence Award for 2021-22 Academic Year!
To say I am proud would be an understatement!
Way to go, Hon! Well done! I love you and am so proud of you!
