Sorry to spam all of you, but it seemed a lot easier than trying 
to figure out who in class is graduating this semester.  If you
are not graduating this month, you can safely delete this message
and move on.

For those of you who are graduating:

Your graduation banquet is set for May 11, and I have been trying
to juggle some things so I could be sure to be there.  The date was 
announced so late that I was already committed to be out of town 
and can not reschedule that trip.  So, something I do not like 
to do: I will miss the banquet on May 11.

However, I will be at the engineering graduation, and hope to see
you and your parents there.  I have been trying unsuccessfully 
for years to get the College to organize something before the
graduation, or in the Erwin Center immediately after the graduation.

Therefore, if you want to bring your folks by POB 6.252 before the
graduation, I should be in my office.  Or, after the graduation,
I will wander around in the dark outside the Erwin Center looking
for you, so I can congratulate you and your parents in person.

Again, sorry I will miss the banquet on the 11th.  I will look forward
to seeing you on the 22nd.  Please pass this along to anyone you think 
would like to know.
