May 18 2008: Matt Graduates from George Washington University with MBA

After two short years Matt is graduating from George Washington University!  It seems like such a short time ago that Matt was transferring to WDC and attending GWU.  What a change of events going from a management training program at his prior employer and fully paid at GWU to Matt finding his new employer and him having to pay the bill himself.  It all makes sense now but at the time it seemed like Matt was taking a big risk ... he is making a great salary, got a partial GWU scholarship, and his new company kicked in some reimbursement funds.  He has to take a couple more classes that complete in June but then he is complete.  The WDC experience has been transformational for him.  He is in one of the most amazing cities in the world and gets first hand exposure to some of the world's leading thinkers in politics and economics.

Fran, Julie and I went Washington DC on Thursday May 15th and stayed through Monday May 19th at Matt's apartment.    He has a beautiful apartment in Arlington, VA and is just a short train ride from the capitol.

Matt's girlfriend Bri is staying with Matt and is pursuing her career in theater production after graduating from Webster University in St Louis, MO.  They were wonderful hosts for our visit and took us to several places across the greater DC area.

Friday night was Matt's graduation walk at his school of business
