Engineering Graduation!
« on: March 04, 2021, 11:16:38 PM »
Folks, 

Very significant event happening soon for a member of the Rover community that deserves a special note.

On Saturday afternoon Peter Rosvall is getting his iron ring in advance of his graduation from engineering in May. (And his 50th birthday coming up in April!). This achievement has taken 10 years of study at Acadia and Dalhousie on evenings, weekends, and summers... all while holding a full time job!

In lieu of a proper garage party (because COVID) notes of congratulations can be sent to his email on Saturday to help celebrate the day. His address is peter@rosvall.ca

Bit of info on what the iron ring signifies: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Iron_Ring#Presentation_ceremony

As the proud dad of two engineers, I have seen what this accomplishment takes with no responsibilities apart from studying!
To finish the program whilst holding down a full time job is a very big deal.
WELL DONE YOU!!
