I think mainly because he was so enthusiastic about doing school and going to school and continuing to get his degree, I decided alright, I'll go for my masters. I'm Karen Bailey. I had gotten my Masters in Leadership.

Gabrielle B: My parents were definitely my support system. They pushed me all the time when I was over school, when I was over everything, when I was extremely overwhelmed, they would always push me and say, "You are this far. You've got to balance between life and between school."

Jeffrey Bailey: The first bit was challenging for her because she's young. She wants to do life, but she committed to this. She saw it through.

Karen Bailey: My experience with the faculty advisors was great. Very on top of it. They were very inclusive, checking in with us, checking out to see kind of what our needs were in terms of our schedule.

Jeffrey Bailey: My name is Jeffrey Bailey. I am receiving my Masters in Public Administration. There is something that has hit my soul in a place that I didn't even realize was there about how awesome it's going to be to see my daughter graduate and see my wife get her masters. It's a diploma that goes on my wall. I look at it fondly and say, "Okay, I achieved that." But the real true measure of what I've achieved as a father and as a man is knowing that these two have graduated. It just tells me that you did good.
