Your grasp of theory, technique, application, and assessment proves to be a tribute to K-State master's programs and an honor for those under whom you studied. I especially wish those in the Trends in Career Development (EDCEP 863) ongoing career success as they navigate their futures with greater understanding of the internal and external influences upon each of their choices. Let the graduates commence!
