*Text from the write up in the paper, ASU website and program:
Jared G was nominated by the Department of Political Science and Philosophy. A political science major with communication minor, he received the B.T. Taylor Memorial Scholarship. His academic performance merited him induction into the Alpha Chi and Phi Kappa Phi national honor societies, as well as the Pi Sigma Alpha political science honor society and Lambda Pi Eta communication honor society. He also presented research at the National Alpha Chi Convention. His extensive involvement in the ASU Student Government Association (SGA) earned him selection as Student Senator of the Year for 2012-13 and election as ASU student body president for 2014-15.
As SGA president, Jared G led efforts to launch the Ram Tram public transportation system, worked to strengthen ties between the university and the community, and represented the student body on the search committee for ASU’s new provost and vice president for academic affairs. He also completed a semester-long internship at Congressman Michael Conaway’s office in Washington, D.C., and worked as a regional field manager for Governor Mike Pence’s re-election campaign in Indiana during his senior year. Following graduation, Jared G plans to begin a career in business and hopes to pursue a career in public office.

I just have to say - "Not bad for a socially awkward, can't compete in the real world with a mommy diploma, homeschooler!" Beware of sterotypes y'all! And to all my fellow-homeschool moms in the trenches....hang in there, it's worth it.
Note - from here we moved on to rehearsal and rehearsal/grad dinner - more posts to follow. LOL
