Cal Poly Pomona Graduate!

"Bachelors of Science Degree in the Study of Biology" That is what they announced for our Randi Holmes on Friday, June 12th! Our girl has worked hard and long to have this diploma in hand! Going from AA degree in Psychology, to a full time Sister Missionary for 2 years in Boise Idaho (time home for knee surgery in there) , returning home to change majors and schools, to a 5 year journey to receive her degree in Biology working full time and getting great grades, and next to venture out to go to graduate school working to receive a Masters Degree in Physician’s Assisting. So this next year she is going to be volunteering to get "patient hours", and a job in which her Biology degree will be of great use. Then applying to more graduate schools this fall.
We were waiting for the festivities to begin Grandma and Grandpa Holmes with Daddy Russell , Kelly and SkylerShe decorated the top of her mortarboard with her initials and glitter, can't miss that! Her Professors that I met, had great things to share about our bright and intelligent girl, and wished her well on her future endeavors. We went from Graduation to dinner, and had a great time with family and friends to celebrate this great day for our Great Girl!

the light of Cal Poly just dimmed a bit...cuz this bright girl is moving on....! Congrats Baby!
