Friday morning at 11 o'clock, twenty-one of us watched as the graduates entered the arena in their caps and gowns. Our little section waved and hollered as Troy Jerome Bargeron came into sight, and I snapped pictures like a professional mom-in-the-making. We all eagerly awaited his name to be called and watch him hold his diploma and walk across the stage, and our hearts erupted when his dreams became reality. My incredibly hard-working husband is now a graduate of Clemson University who officially has a Bachelor of Science degree in Mathematical Sciences!
We are SO proud of you, TJ!
Where the blue ridge yawns its greatness,
Where the Tigers play,
Here the sons of dear old Clemson
Reign supreme alway.
Dear old Clemson we will triumph,
And with all our might,
That the Tigers roar may echo
O'er the mountain height.
