Elizabeth has worked very hard, and has received two bachelor's degrees:
One in Linguistics and another in International Studies (Emphasis Japanese).
Elizabeth has been a good student who has always loved school. A college education has been her goal since she was a young girl. There have been some difficult obstacles along the way, but she never gave up and continued to work hard.
I am so proud of her!
Jon Huntsman, Jr. was the speaker at Convocation. He is the former Governor of Utah and currently is U.S. Ambassador to China.
We thought it was interesting that the graduation took place in the Jon M. Huntsman Center, named after the father of Jon Huntsman, Jr.
We learned today that the University of Utah is among the top 100 colleges in the nation.
Mr. Cactus financed most of Elizabeth's education, and offered much encouragement, tutoring, and support over the years.
As Elizabeth was growing up she was always interested in a million things. I wondered how she would ever focus on one major because she was the kind who wanted to "do it all". We called her "busy Lizzy" as a nickname.
