Mama and I are in Canton, MO this weekend, attending the college graduation of our second son, Jeff. Jeff graduates summa cum laude with a 3.9283 GPA, has been the president of his fraternity and will be missed at Culver-Stockton College. He is graduating on his birthday.
C-SC is affiliated with the Christian Church, Disciples of Christ, and the Humanities Division (which includes the Religion Department) gives an award each year to the student who most promotes Christianity on campus. It is not an award for evangelizing but more of an award for promoting Christian values and Christian faith - for being the best example of Christianity. Jeff won the award this year.
I am proud of my son and the man he is - an example of being comfortable with his faith, unconditionally loving of everyone and, at the core, just a good person. He is loved by all, and that is the best tribute I could give him.
Love you, Jeff. Happy Birthday!
