Nathan Grant, Oxford graduate



Nathan Grant receives diploma at Oxford College, May 11, 201

May 11, 2013 — It was a beautiful spring day in Oxford, Georgia as Nathan and his classmates lined up to accept their associate degrees and begin their new status as Emory University juniors. (About 95 percent of Oxford grads go on to study at Emory’s main campus in the Druid Hills section of Atlanta.)  Nathan only has a brief respite before he begins summer school at Emory on May 20. He’ll be studying Biology, Calculus 2, and Economics. Judy and I are very proud of him.  Yay, Nathan!
