Kepler Graduates’ Influence in Academia
Mark Urban-Lurain PhD
A Commencement Address by Dr. Mark Urban-Lurain
Welcome Kepler students, families, friends, board members and faculty.
It gives me great pleasure, and pride, to be part of this celebration in honor of the Nereids, Kepler’s second graduating class.
As Carol, Dennis and I discussed this evening’s theme – Expanding our Sphere of Influence – one of the images we had was that of ripples on water. The idea that each of you is a ripple in the river that is astrology – and life. Each and every one of you, through your hard work, sweat, tears and perseverance, arrives here today a different person than you were when you started your studies just a few years ago. The flow of your each of lives has been altered in ways you may not yet perceive. And will take you in directions you cannot begin to imagine.
