Today Kirsti and her friend Lana will graduate from Jamestown College. It is just a formality, really, because Kirsti finished her course work in December and has been gainfully employed since early in the year. I do, however want to pause and reflect on this girl, who left home for college. She found friends, love, and today will graduate cum laude with a double major and a double minor.
