My son Philippe received his PhD in French today!
Philippe and Eric share a moment together before the ceremony
The French and Italian department of the University of Colorado held a small ceremony honoring their graduates. Philippe's mentor, Warren Motte, spoke about Philippe's research and contribution to the department before bestowing the doctoral hood.
Then outdoors for obligatory family photos. Here is Philippe with his wife Rachel.
Proud mom with her sons
