Acceptance Letters: Parents, college and letting go

Robert Daugherty

Hometown  —  Atlanta, Georgia

Robert, parent of a Kenyon sophomore, works as a technical sales manager for a large enterprise software company and holds a graduate degree in applied mathematics. His career has been characterized by building successful teams of individuals around common goals. His daughter, Caroline, is a mathematics and economics major in the Class of 2019. His visit to her Real Analysis class proudly revealed how much math his daughter has learned, but also humbly reminded him how much he has forgotten. He is also an avid podcast listener, with Fresh Air with Terry Gross, This American Life with Ira Glass, and Kenyon’s The Pinnacle as current favorites.
