Happy 10th Anniversary

That's right. It was 10 years ago in Dr. Smith’s ACTY 211 class at WMU that Special Group Alpha was born. Kalvin and I worked together on an assignment, but we couldn’t settle for a boring cover page with just our names. So being the massive dorks we are, we decided to establish Special Group Alpha and grace our cover page with a giant α. Dr. Smith had a great sense of humor. I’m sure she got a chuckle out of it.

We were just friends then, and our friendship was strong. But I don’t think either one of us realized how much this silly little expression of geekery would shape the evolution of our relationship and ultimately the rest of our lives.

It’s hard to believe that it has been 10 years since the beginning of Special Group Alpha. But here we are: 10 years, 650 miles, 7 jobs, 7 apartments, 7 nephews, 6 weeks in Europe, 5 cars, 5 funerals, 4 dorm rooms, 4 nieces, 2 states, 2 weddings, 2 churches, 2 kids, 1 house, and 1 feisty kitty cat later. We are so blessed.


  1. We took almost every class together that semester. What the hell were we thinking!?

  2. The 2 weddings was the best. You guys are awesome and the best team. Love ya!
