Les Rose Graduates with Masters

May 10, 2010 discussion, lead

I’m not sure how he does it.

Les Rose is a photog with CBS News in LA. He travels the world covering events alongside some of the best story-tellers in the business. He speaks, teaches and spreads his love of people and photojournalism whenever he can. He still finds time to spend with his beautiful family. Somehow over the past couple years he’s squeezed a few extra hours in his day to complete a Master’s Degree course load at the University of Nebraska.

Again, I’m not sure how he does it.

Well, this past weekend, Rose got to don his cap and gown (a tall-size I’m sure – Les is over 6 feet tall) and walk across the stage to receive his Master’s Diploma.

Congratulations to him – and his family – who may actually see him a few more hours each day.

    Les- At the STN convention my students always rank you as one of the most inspirational speakers. The diploma says what we at STN always have known….that you are a true Master of your craft.

    …so very humbled by your kind words…but it was honestly my family that made it physically and literally possible! I am most proud that I never turned down my sons to play with…and they do NOT call me Uncle Daddy! They now both Masters or PhDs of their own…
