Congratulations, Sophia, it has been a fabulous learning experience for the last four years. Difficult and enlightening engineering courses, the Glasgow study abroad semester, the European cultural adventure tour, the Student Launch Team, the Northwestern and Art Institute of Chicago summer job, the radio executive producer and DJ experience, your violin participation with the Vandy Orchestra, the ankle prosthesis project, and the intracellular tension force modeling project. Whew, you have been busy and have excelled in all of these. Along the way you made some wonderful friends who will stay with you forever and had some fun. Good luck and best wishes as you go out into the world as a fine, accomplished, articulate young lady.

Sam we are so very proud of you and your work at Vanderbilt. Being on the Dean’s list all four years and finishing a Computer Science Engineering degree in two years is quite amazing along with landing a job at Amazon in Austin. Can’t wait to see what the future holds for you!

All our love, 
Mom, Dad, Julia and Grace

To Aaron Niederman (BS'20):
Congrats on the Fulbright Scholarship! It was a pleasure to engage in discussion and debate in the Engineering and Public Policy class this semester. I hope you had as good of a time as I did.
Best of luck in your next adventure,

To our scholar-athletes especially Kacie Breeding, Kendall Derry, and Harrison Thomas, all of whom I had the pleasure of teaching -- 

I congratulate you on completing your degrees while simultaneously meeting the challenges of crazy early, long, hard workouts, travel to meets, competition pressure, and more. I was and remain so impressed by your focus, organization, and can-do attitude. Your intense discipline as scholar-athletes will carry you far. Please stay in touch. I will miss you!

Best regards,
