I am so proud of Kirk. He has had a HUGE weight on his shoulders for a long time now with school, finishing his thesis while at the same time studying for his CFA, and well not always having the most supportive wife.
I really think it brightened his day when he got the following e-mail.
"Congratulations! As a result of your outstanding academic achievement, you are eligible to apply for the College of Business Administration's 2010-2011 Outstanding EMBA Student Award."
Kirk would need to turn in a one page essay and his transcripts. Then he would go to the 40th Annual College of Business Awards Banquet.
I have a handful of friends and family that have supported their spouse through the Masters program. It is not easy for anyone especially the person completing their Masters. Not to mention that he has five kids, 15 chickens, and working full time.
Great job Kirk!!
