Master of Information Systems

Nathan did it!
On May 4th he graduated from the University of Utah with a Master's of Science in Information Systems. His final project looked at comparing different drugs and EMR data (electronic medical records), and then recreating studies, all using the data. His professor asked if he wanted to do a pHD...we'll see:)

Congratulations Nathan, you worked so hard, and we are so proud of your accomplishment!
Now we get our daddy back!
There were these big red "U's" around all the entrances, I think they light up.

We were excited that Mom and Dad Manwaring came out for the graduation too.
I was thankful for the help during the actual ceremony.
I know they are so proud of Nathan too! Nathan's brother Robert graduated from ASU the morning before, and afterwards they hopped on a plane and came up to Utah to see Nathan graduate too.
We sat up at the top level of the Huntsman Center (basketball arena), and really, the sound system was awful. You couldn't hear much, and anytime anyone clapped, then you couldn't hear the next person's name being called.
There also wasn't a stage, and the graduates were so close to each other, there wasn't an opportunity to trip :(

Our family, we are very happy he's done!

James was a little unsure of Daddy's funny hat

Yeah, he did it!

Afterwards we headed to Texas Roadhouse for a great dinner.
Kirstin got to meet us there after her dog show in Salt Lake that day.
Thank you Nathan for being a great example for all of us!
