My son and his family just returned to McAllen from attending the UNT graduation of Justin Dimas ('17), my granddaughter Lauren's ('16) fiance. All I am hearing about is the "awesome block party" for the new graduates. Justin's parents traveled from Georgia and his sister came from Lubbock.
Both families enjoyed commencement and thought the party was fantastic and so well organized. Our hats are off to all those who did such a wonderful job for the graduates and their families.
Thank you to President Neal J. Smatresk and the committee for having the party that was enjoyed by so many. It made me even more proud of UNT.
Also, the kids thought President Smatresk was cool.
