You can call me Dr Dr Dr Hayhoe now! 😁

Last night I was honoured with a doctorate in humane letters from my alma mater, @VicCollege_UofT, adding to my earned PhD in atmospheric sciences from @Illinois_Alma and an honorary doctorate from the amazing @colgateuniv last May.
What was particularly special about this one is that my aunt Ruth Hayhoe and I were honoured together! She is an eminent professor and scholar in the area of Asian education who worked at @OISEUofT and served as president of the Hong Kong Institute of Education.
Not only that, but most of our family are also @VicCollege_UofT grads. Both my sisters followed me to Vic, Christy graduating with a degree in chemistry and art, Deb in mathematics and linguistics.
My parents were both @VicCollege_UofT grads too. One of my earliest memories is standing in line at the registrar at age five or so as my mother signed up for a new course every year after finishing her BA in history and English. A sanity-saving strategy when you have 3 kiddies!
Most of our extended family are also @VicCollege_UofT grads, from Great-Aunt Alice (left) who graduated in 1954 to Aunt Louise (second from the right) who first met her husband in the very same building we were in.
At the family dinner the administration graciously hosted for sixteen of our family members, they even organised a Hayhoe pep rally. How awesome is this.
And as far as we know - @VicCollege_UofT says they checked - we are the first Aunt/niece pair to be honoured like this in Canada. How cool is that. It was the best night 😊🇨🇦
