a family milestone



I am so proud of my Dad. He was recently bestowed an Honorary Doctorate at the University of Saskatchewan in recognition of his achievements in the field of art and printmaking. By chance (and good timing) I also graduated with my Master's degree at the same Convocation. My Father made the convocation address. He also looked pretty cute in his academic robes!

Here we are after the ceremony. Dad is in the middle and we are with Dr. Peter MacKinnon, President of the University. As happy as I am to have completed my education, I am very proud and pleased that the University honored my father for his lifetime of work and service to the institution.
