Officially Emily Hursty, MBA!! I can’t believe it and I am so excited!
When I arrived on campus for the ceremony I met up with a few fellow grads who have been with me thoughts this long crazy journey. Each of these beautiful, accomplished women have inspired me in different ways throughout the years.
Denise is a mother of 6 (!!!!) and still found the time to push herself through this programs. Ashley lives over an hour away from campus and still made the hike multiple times a week to Salem to complete this program. I just met Sarah this semester and she was in both of my classes. She and her now husband got married in Iceland (check out my trip recaps here: Day 1, Day 2, Day 3, Day 4) this semester and she still maintained an astonishing GPA. I wish nothing but the best to these ladies!
Just before the ceremony were were all lined up in the gym and ready to make out entrance to Pomp and Circumstance.
As soon as I sat I immediately opened the Commencement Exercises brochure just to make sure my name was in there…not that I was worried but its still good to see! After a few great speeches, it was time to award the diplomas.

I still can’t believe it!! I really am Emily Hursty, MBA! A.MAZE.ING!
SL was happy for me too! We briefly celebrated at the champagne reception and snapped a few shots. Well, Sarah snapped them for us…thanks Sarah!
After this we met my parents, sister and her boyfriend for a delicious dinner to celebrate. I didn’t take any pictures because I was starving and concentrating on family time. As for today…working from home, maybe some TRX but mostly just enjoying my new title, Emily Hursty, MBA!
