Stout Proud Friday

@jacobtfmaes

“The path to our destination is not always a straight one. We go down the wrong road; we get lost; we turn back. Maybe it doesn’t matter which road we embark on. Maybe what matter is that we embark.”
—Barbara Hall

Today could have been my graduation day where I would have earned my Masters Degree, but as the quote says above, the path isn’t always a straight one and mine most definitely has not been the last year. I’ll be getting back to full time schooling this fall; but this post isn’t about me and neither has the last two years as I started my graduate school journey — it’s been about all of these people and today is about them too!

Congratulations to many of these lovey people who I’ve had the pleasure to meet, work with and go to school with over the last two years - it has truly been a pleasure and all of you will do great things on the paths you take in your personal and professional lives. You have all earned it! So celebrate you! Congratulations again friends!🎓❤️ #StoutProud #classof2020 #GraduateSchool #MastersDegree #SchoolCounseling #ClinicalMentalHealthCounseling #SchoolPsychology
