Congratulations Berea!

My sister just graduated with a B.S. in Industrial Engineering from Milwaukee School of Engineering! I have to be honest, I had my doubts that we would be here today. Why am I so negative? She struggled! I mean school overall came fairly easy for me, she really had to work at it. I feel that sometimes the struggle gives more value to the final achievement than the results on paper. In other words, the results are what matter more than the effort, but meaningful results are often the product of significant effort and that is part of why the results are meaningful.

I suppose I always thought she would have one more semester or one more class to finish, but apparently, she is done. It is great! Not only has she graduated, but a company that she interned with offered her a job and she accepted. She starts working full time at ABB Monday.

She graduated and has a job. I mean, none of this happened overnight, it took years of work, 4 years and three months to be specific. Yet I feel like her IE degree is a brick wall she broke through. This is a significant accomplishment! Most people only have one bachelors degree graduation. She did it! She is a real industrial engineer! Congratulations Berea!!
