Mary Jane Hooker will enjoy an outsider’s view come the end of the school year, when exactly zero of her grandchildren will graduate from college.
It was at the close of the 2012-13 school year that the Columbus resident practically drove her wheels off to attend the graduation ceremonies of several grandchildren in the same month.
Kyle Gatesby, graduated from the University of Indianapolis with a doctorate degree in physical therapy with a specialty in orthopedics
Matthew Gatesby, graduated from La Cordon Bleu College in Dallas with a degree in culinary arts
Michael Hooker, graduated from Purdue University in West Lafayette with a bachelor’s degree in biology
Dakota Hooker, graduated from Indiana University in Bloomington with a bachelor’s degree in parks and recreation and tourism
Courtney Hooker, graduated with bachelor’s degrees in chemistry and Spanish from Butler University in Indianapolis.
Mary Jane Hooker said she did not attend the graduation ceremony in Texas. However, she attended the four Indiana ceremonies on two consecutive weekends.
All the ceremonies were on a Saturday or a Sunday, and those were on the same day were separated by enough time that Mary Jane was able to keep up, she said.
