Last week Ariane received her Masters Degree in Music from the University of Utah. It caps off two years of hard work studying music and working with the band up at the U. I made the trip up to the campus for graduation along with Arianes parents, grandma, sister and niece and nephew. Ambassador John Huntsman Jr. was the speaker and it was a nice ceremony. Ariane conducted the band for a piece during the prelude.
What does one receive for getting her masters degree? You get a diploma with a red cover, a new gown that has some sort of fancy sleeves, a new hat, a brown tassel which is the color for degrees in fine arts and a hood (that’s the red and white thing hanging on Ariane’s back).
I am so proud of her for all her hard work and her passion for learning. She is a great example for my daughter.
