Barbara Gray, PhD
At 4:23 CST this afternoon, Barbara officially became Dr. Barbara Gray with her hooding at Texas Woman's University's graduation ceremony.
State Representative Helen Giddings was the speaker and spoke about the responsibility that comes with privilege. She did a good job for a graduation speaker - she had something worth saying, she got to the point, and she sat down. One phrase stuck with me...she said "we all need to pay rent for the space we occupy in life", meaning that we have a responsibility to contribute to making the world a better place.
