Claudia graduates from BYU

Claudia (as in my wife) was one of 2,143 graduates in BYU's 98th annual summer commencement. She graduated cum laude with a bachelor of arts in elementary education (minor in German). She taught second grade in Springville during the past school year and then finished her course work this summer. During her sophomore year (1971) she spent a semester studying in Salzburg, Austria.

Elder Howard W. Hunter, now of the Council of the Twelve and once Claudia's bishop and stake president, presided and spoke at the summer commencement August 17. Wallace F. Bennett, retiring Republican senator from Utah, gave the main address. His theme: We cannot possess that which we inherit from our fathers until we earn it for ourselves.

The two of us spent the week following her graduation on the sunny beaches of southern California as guests of her parents, the Langes. It was a last chance to see her only brother David, who leaves October 13 for the newly created Thailand Mission.
