Jonathan Richard Simon, the grandson of Esther Simon and the late Manny Simon, son of Michael and Sandra Simon, and brother of, David, Jason, and Camille Simon graduated from the University of Chicago on June 9th, 2007. His degree was in Slavic Languages and Literatures - with Honors.

Jon was elected to Phi Beta Kappa in the Spring of 2006.

He has been a Student Marshal since 2006.

Here is what the University has to say about their Student Marshals.

Student Marshals are appointed by the President of the University in recognition of their excellent scholarship and leadership. Appointment as a Student Marshal is the highest honor conferred by the University upon undergraduate students.
Congrats Jon!!!!!!!!!!!!

And now you know why my blogging has been light for the past few days.

Chicago was my school. However, I dropped out after the first year to pursue other interests. Jon has set a mark of excellence that has far surpassed anything I was able to accomplish in school. Plus he has done me proud by doing it at my old school.

Congratulations to Jon.

He completed a difficult program at a first-tier university, a credit to himself, and his parents and extended family as well. You have every reason to be proud.

And now we know what M. stands for in M.Simon!

Cheers!

Are Jon and yourself any relation to Julian Simon, the great debunker of eco-myths?
