Kingman Daily Miner – As their child walks across the stage at commencement to receive a degree, most mothers watch excitedly from the stands. Not Jennifer Picard. She’ll join her son, Jason, in walking across that stage to receive her own diploma today at Mohave Community College.

“About six years ago my oldest child was graduating high school, and my husband and I were strongly encouraging him to go to college and trying to impress upon him the importance of this education,” Jennifer said. “And it dawned on me that here I had this degree that I started all those years ago but never finished myself. So I thought I should put my words into action and go make myself complete that degree as well.”

A work ethic and drive must run in the family because Jason explained that watching his mom complete this achievement has had a lasting effect on him.
