LOVE hearing how these amazing kids are successfully celebrating their accomplishments.
Another accomplishment and an acknowledgment to Liza, holding the title of Ephemera Section Manager for The Friends of Palo Alto Library/FOPAL! For years on the 2nd Saturday of each month, 8am Liza took on the FOPAL Sale masses that flocked to the offerings:) A super big THANK YOU & CONGRATULATIONS!

I have taught high school and college classes from the 101 level to graduate students, authored books, worked in broadcasting,. the airline industry, and high-tech. I would have been proud, in the best sense of the word, to have taught any of these wonderful students or to work with them as colleagues as they move on in life. Good luck in these difficult times. The world is a better place because of them.

Today my daughter graduated from Harvard College summa cum laude and received the highest award for her English graduation thesis, the George B. Sohier Prize. Due to the pandemic, the graduation ceremony was delayed indefinitely. When I heard the graduation music online, memories of her attending kindergarten, primary and secondary graduation ceremonies flashed before my eyes. She is 21, but only she herself, those who love her and God would know the struggles she has faced. Yet because of this, the ecstasy, pride and gratitude of the moment are exceptionally sweet,” Joan wrote.

I'll admit that Mark Weiss's comments are often inane and pointless. (I mean do you really think THAT much about your high school days?) However, they are fairly entertaining. Not sure why they get blocked and you let others like "the voice of Palo alto' in other threads blatantly attack people.
I'd much rather hear about Weiss's third degree connection to someone, which is completely harmless compared to the attacks from people like the voice offer up on a constant basis.
