Dr. D'Arcy

Finally. The work for my doctorate degree is complete.

I successfully defended my dissertation on March 25th at the University of Tennessee, College of Communication and Information Science, School of Journalism and Electronic Media. My dissertation chair, Dr. Catherine A. Luther guided me through tough questions during the defense and reminded me that it was okay to "argue" my point. The committee members (who are supportive and fantastic but tough) accepted my work with minimal revisions. I'm on Cloud 9!

Today, I finished my last set of revisions and read through my dissertation word by word to correct any typos or mistakes. My absolute worst nightmare is that my dissertation will be published with a mistake. I then submitted the document to the university's system. It is finished!

Mom, dad and I celebrated officially with a bottle of Piper-Heidsieck Rose Sauvage (a gift from James to my mother for her birthday) and dinner at the Bald Head Island Club. This spring is looking good.
