Former student gives commencement address. Instructor promises not to cry.

One of my star students at Wilkes University, Ms. Laura Joy Perales is a high school teacher at the Nashville School of the Arts in TN. This week she received her master of science degree in Instructional Media and was asked to give the commencement speech. Laura Joy was the kind of student that made being a teacher so rewarding and her words at commencement I think can inspire everyone facing new beginnings. The Wilkes Instructional Media Program is conducted entirely online and commencement weekend was Laura's first visit to the Wilkes campus, in this was the first time I've ever see her or heard her voice, funny right? I think this all means good things for distance and online learning. Learn more about this program at
