Tonight was the Fall Graduation Ceremony at West Virginia University of Parkersburg, and I was in it lol. I graduated with Honors and a Bachelors Degree in Technology, basically I am a Process Engineer lol.

Also, not to overshadow myself, Jessica Lynch graduated with her Teaching Degree tonight as well, and I am sure most of you remember that she was a POW in the Iraq War back in 2003. I don't know her personally, but she gave a nice speech tonight, and did not make it about herself, she made it about all the graduates of tonight's ceremony. She just wants to be the same level as everyone else, no better, no worse, if that makes sense. I just think she deserves a congratulations on earning her degree and beginning to realize her own dreams as well.

One small question, what is your degree label for short? Is it B.T. ( for Bachelor of Technology) Or can everyone here say you have a B.S.?
