Son’s posthumous Cal Poly degree an honor

On June 18, Cal Poly posthumously awarded my son Ian Kingsbury, who passed away last November, his Bachelor of Science degree.

His mother, Mary, and I attended and accepted the degree in Ian’s honor. The time and effort extended by the staff at President Jeffrey Armstrong’s office and the Computer Science Department touched us deeply and made this extremely difficult and emotional day as stress free as reasonably possible for us, our friends and family.

Being able to meet personally with President Armstrong and his wife to receive their condolences and best wishes, as well as the well-planned coordination by our escort, created a memorable day that truly honored the hard work and effort of Ian. Thank you Cal Poly for your kindness and generosity.

Randy Kingsbury, San Luis Obispo
