UF’s graduation — orange and blue and excitement

Lining up – One of my duties as a graduation marshal was to help line up the journalism graduates in the hallway outside the arena floor. A highlight of being marshal is getting to see and visit with so many of the students who were in class with me two or three years before when they began their coursework in the college. Sharilyn Wiskup was one of the students who came in to talk with me about her career goals when a student in MMC 2100 — and then kept coming back as she moved through the program. Her last semester she had an independent study with me, writing a memoir about her high school experience of being both on the cheerleading team and the wrestling squad.
