I’d like to thank…
It occurred to me recently (after receiving my parchment in the mail a year after commencement) that while I’ve finished my thesis and received my Master’s degree, I never publicly acknowledged everyone who was such a huge help in getting me from point A to point Z. It was a long journey and there are a few of people to thank.
My thesis featured a dedication page, but since the likelihood of anyone actually laying eyes on it are nil, I figured I’d reprint it here on the blog – a slightly more public venue than Rowan University’s Keith & Shirley Campbell Library database.
I won’t bore you with the whole thesis, so onto the thanks:
I dedicate this body of work to…
My wife, Jennifer, who figured out how to pay for this fool’s errand of a degree with little financial support and no guarantee of a big payoff at the end.
My sister-in-law Janet, who taught me more about research tools in 90 minutes than an entire course dedicated to the same topic.
My parents, John and JoAnn Walsh, who laid a solid education foundation for me that I hope to pass on to others.
And finally, my son, Jack, who helps me understand where my priorities lay.
