We just held a very touching ceremony where one of our PhD students, Jim Golby, was promoted to Major, United States Army.
It was a very classy ceremony, held indoors in our seminar room (!) on a rainy Friday here at Stanford, but well attended by a mix of family, friends, students and faculty. Jim’s wife helped pin the Major’s insignia on his uniform. During the ceremony we learned that Jim is up for this promotion about a year early. Congratulations…
We’re running about 2 military admits a year to our PhD program, mainly Army. Ceremonies like that today help remind us why we love having these men and women in our Department.
