Daniel Matheny: Class of 2008!

The above photo depicts a proud moment for our family! My nephew, Daniel Matheny, was one of the Commencement Speakers for the Long Beach Millikan High School Class of 2008. The Long Beach Press-Telegram captured Daniel delivering his speech, "You Do Matter."

I confess that there's a little satisfaction that Daniel graduated from my alma mater. I graduated from Millikan with the Class of '76; followed by his Uncle KC, Class of '78; and his Dad, Bret, Class of '82. It's awesome to know that a part of us was still connected to those memories!

Daniel is a bright, sweet, caring, and witty young man who has already made a significant difference in this world. He is also a loyal and sacrificial friend. Daniel's tenacity and his heart for tackling life changing projects will no doubt create wide ripples in his life.
