We received good news this week; Ryan won a short story contest and has been asked to present it at the English Department’s Reading Series at the end of this week. This is just a preview of things to come. I am so happy for you Ryan. Congratulations. He is making great progress on his thesis and the goal is to be done in April. He signed up his committee chair this last week, but Ryan still needed one more member. The committee chair recommended a professor in a different department, and even sent a glowing email (he mailed a copy of it to Ryan) to this other professor about how great Ryan’s work is and how he’s going places. It’s great to hear that his teachers, who are published authors, say that Ryan is an “Up and Coming” author.
