Congratulations to our 2013 Spring Graduate Matt Gallagher, son of Kentucky Seminole Club Member, Jude Gallagher!
Kentucky Seminole Club Member, Jude Gallagher on her son, Matt’s graduation from FSU.
Sometimes we forget that FSU is actually a place of learning and not just a place to watch sports.
Tallahassee Leon County Civic Center provided a large venue for scores of Florida State University students to transform to alumni cheered on by proud family members and raucous supportive friends.
For my husband and me, seeing our son’s 5 seconds of fame, striding across the stage shaking hands with President Barron, was gratifying and symbolic of the bigger accomplishment of moving into the next phase of adulthood and employment. Matt speaks of his experience in the College of Business where he studied Finance and Real Estate as challenging and positive; FSU traditions and sports programs as energizing; and the bonds built within his Phi Kappa Tau Fraternity as lifelong brotherhood. The four years passed in a blink of the eye, but the knowledge and relationships will not fade.
As Matt seeks employment in Commercial Real Estate and prepares for graduate school entry examinations, he is also laying plans for game day travel this coming season. He is Seminole Proud Forever!
