Working full-time, getting married and having a child added to his academic workload over the last nine-and-a-half years, which made Thursday’s commencement ceremonies at the University of New Hampshire at Manchester all the more meaningful.
“I’m actually really going to miss it,” Bryk said. “It was a great challenge and a lot of fun. I recommend it for anyone thinking about going back. It’s so rewarding. It really is.”
“It’s one of those things. You realize life’s going by,” he said before taking his seat with the other graduates inside a giant tent set up in the parking lot near Arms Park.
UNH president Mark Huddleston noted Bryk’s achievement during his opening remarks after the graduates were led to their seats by the New Hampshire Police Association’s pipes and drums corps.
