People Love Rituals

This is kind of sweet:
Southern Methodist University officials say they will not press charges against a Dallas woman who allegedly forged a diploma and staged graduation from the Dedman School of Law.


The matter came to the university's attention when someone filed a report with SMU police. The person, whose name has not been released, claimed that [very bad person Michelle] Fyfe had produced a fraudulent law diploma and transcript.

Coworkers and friends said Fyfe also staged graduation in a room at the Park Cities Hilton in Aug. 2011. The hotel confirmed that the room was reserved under the name of an event planner who was hired by Fyfe.
If her fake degree was in computer graphics she wouldn't have had to rent a room.

True Confessions: When I was a junior in High School, I got an NSF grant to take math and computer science courses at smoo for 6 weeks in the summer.

It's hot in Dallas in the summer.

how does one 'stage' an entire graduation? did she have just a big ass party at the hotel? didn't people ask to go to the actual ceremony? there are just too many unanswered questions for me!

She did stage the graduation and she is a heartless selfish crazy neurotic person. Who needs to confront some big issues in her life head on or she will only continue to spiral out of control. I'm afraid she is too far gone already.

You hire an event coordinator who puts you in contact with actors and you pay (or in this case con them) into acting out the ceremony.

But wait, this is not the first event. There is also a faked MBA from TCU with accompanying transcript from 1990s.
