Last weekend, I was recognized as a UF Outstanding Young Alumni. I represented the College of Agricultural and Life Sciences. I'm not sure how I got the honor; others being recognized included the youngest judge in Florida, the head vet at the Atlanta Aquarium, a neurosurgeon, etc. But, it was still a really big honor and a neat weekend.
We started last Saturday off with an awards breakfast. I know that these things typically don't have real food, so I ate breakfast beforehand. But, I guess John didn't think about it. They really only had pastries, fruit, cheese, and salmon. John didn't realize the salmon was raw. He wasn't impressed with the breakfast.
From there, we went directly to the Orange & Blue game alumni bbq tent. Of course, John ate a lot at that.
One of the honors of being recognized was the chance to sit in the President's Box. After the bbq, we headed up to it. It was a very nice buffet, ice cream, desserts, cuban sandwiches, etc. We spent the hour before the game sampling the food. The President's Box is definitely not somewhere for serious game watchers to sit. I think very few were actually watching the game.
This is my friend and neighbor Cathy. She's also the director of the CALS Alumni & Friends so she got to go to the award ceremony with us.
To prove we were actually at the President's Box.
