Another Bachelor in the Family

May 14th, 2007 · 11 Comments

We just got back from California where Devon received his BS Degree in Physics from Harvey Mudd College.

In case you’re thinking, “Harvey Mudd College?”, it was rated by US News and World Report in their annual college rating issue as the number one undergraduate science and engineering college in the country.

Devon graduated with “High Distinction”, which is as high as they go.

He’s so glad to be out of the pressure cooker that he plans to take a year off before starting graduate school in Fall 2008. He’s looking for an internship in the mean time.

Congratulations Devon!

    Way to go, Devon. Congratulations! Not only is your degree in a tough subject – Physics – from a tough college – Harvey Mudd – but then you go and do it with “high distinction”. WOW! You make us all proud.

    Wooohoooo! Way to go Devon!! That is great! The only problem is you are not a UA Wildcat, but we will forgive you as long as you cheer for them!

    Heather: I don’t think Harvey Mudd is a real powerhouse in any of the usual sports but I bet they have a heck of a chess team.
