Congratulations to Dr. Megan Francisco!

Moments like this are such a gift for those of us who teach. I am beyond thrilled for newly minted PhD, Dr. Megan Francisco (pictured right) as she achieves her dream after years of work at Wheaton, Yale, University of Washington, and a little Oxford in between, and so touched and grateful — and just a little teary — over having been included in her dissertation acknowledgements. Indeed the impossible is not that impossible when you’re as brilliant as Megan! ❤

“To my professors at Wheaton College, particularly Dr. Jennie Brown, thank you for encouraging me to pursue Music History and going for ‘the impossible’. It turns out the impossible wasn’t impossible after all…” Dr. Megan Francisco (Wheaton, Yale/Oxford, University of Washington)
