For Matthew Neely, the only thing better than receiving his Master of Arts in English and Creative Writing diploma, was receiving it surrounded by family, friends and coworkers- and to have it delivered by his advisor, Jen.
Though in communication for over a year, this was the first time Matt and Jen ever met in person. Immediately recognizing Jen’s voice, he was beyond grateful she came to Colorado congratulate him.
After celebrating Matt (and enjoying a slice of celebratory cake!), we headed north to Denver. On our way, we stopped at America the Beautiful Park in Colorado Springs to meet current SNHU student, SFC Casey Kendall.
SFC Kendall saw we were driving close to where he is stationed in the Army and reached out in hopes of meeting us personally. Currently pursing a degree in Marketing, he is determined to make the trip to New Hampshire to walk with the graduating class of 2018!
Though both Matt and Casey are each at different points in their journey, each is determined to achieve their own definition of success.
For us, meeting them made our trip to Colorado beyond successful.
Up next: San Francisco.
