Meg Polson at The College of Saint Rose Chronicle did a very nice senior profile on me called “Graduates life anything but ordinary.” It was distributed in print at graduation on May 10th with the following picture (credit: Tim Clune).
PS: The title’s typo was produced by the paper’s editor, not Meg. He also added the humorous tagline “Senior Clune has settled in East Nassau with her husband and looks forward to walking.” How old does he think I am? Did I simply settle with my husband? AND, contrary to my pose for the picture, I do walk occasionally. I wonder where he thought I looked forward to walking to?
To clarify a few factual problems, college was my only option after high school and it was my father, not both parents who threatened the “teach or starve” approach to study back in the late ’80s. Actually, it was “teach or I’m buying you waitress shoes.” Also, as a transfer student, I was at Saint Rose for two and half years, not four. But hey, they didn’t mistake my 4.0 for something like a 3.8. That’s something.
