John Edstrom's Graduation Weekend at Virginia Tech

Last weekend John graduated from VT.  I posted last Friday what I knew about his achievements (yes, I am a proud father and bragging, but bear with me for this blog post :-)   I also recorded John receiving his degree and is viewable here.

Above is Dr. Barbara Ryder, head of the CS Department for VT, giving John one of his two awards he received at the College of Engineering's Department of Computer Science's Award Ceremony.  John was awarded the CS Service Award and a CS Scholar Award.  John completed his CS degree with minors in mathematics and business.  While at VT, John served as president of ACM; Social Chair of Upsilon Pi Epsilon   CS Honor Society; site coordinator, Vice President, and Treasurer of CS-Squared -   was a member of the VT Programming Team and was in VT Honors.  John interned for Microsoft and Optimal Satcom, worked for Sun Microsystems and was web developer for the Collegiate Times.  He also worked as an undergraduate teaching assistant for the Department of Computer Science. Even with all those extracurriculars, John achieved an overall GPA of 3.96 and in-major of 3.96.  Congratulations to John!

Needless to say we are very proud of our oldest son.  I am also not shy about blogging how proud we are :-)
