I am happy to report that my mother graduated from NCCU on December 16, 2007 with a Bachelors of Arts in English degree with high honors.  Al hamdulillah.  She had a very nice graduation and I hosted a party for her.   Things went well and she is now teaching 3rd grade at a local elementary school.  My mom was in college for a long time and I am proud that she stuck with it and finished.  She graduated almost 10 years to the day that I did.  We were both December graduates. 

Congratulations Mom!
