Thursday, May 5th, 2011

Congrats are in order for BPLG’s own Ramona Magdalena Romandia who will be graduating from the University of Arizona School of Information & Library Science.   Ramona has been working hard to complete her schooling and all her friends at BPLG send her a shout out and our best on her special day.  Here are all the details from Ramona’s email:

“I am pleased to announce my graduation from University of Arizona School of Information Resources & Library Science.  Since I do not plan to get a doctorate or another MS, this is my last hurrah. Therefore, I will participate in the “Rainbow” ceremony on 5/4, the Native American Student Assoc. (NASA) ceremony on 5/10, the Chicano ceremony on 5/11, and the SIRLS ceremony on 5/13.  All are invited, all are welcome. I even have a spare room! So, if you are able, why not car pool! I could not have done this w/o the love, encouragement, and prayers of all of you.  If you see a spot for me, let me know!”
