  1. Thank you to Eddie and Andrew, both of whom have given and continue to give BU so much. Congrats, Andrew!

    Another great feature by Bill Politis.

  2. What a wonderful family and such a grateful son, something that I think is very rare these days. I wish the Almeida family a lifetime of closeness!

  3. I’ve seen first hand how hard so many people have worked to make it possible for their children to attend BU. Really wonderful to see this sacrifice portrayed so lovingly in this segment. Many congratulations to Andrew and Eddie, and your family. Best wishes to you Andrew in your career.

  4. Great film Bill. Eddie you are an amazing father (and handsome too!). COM is proud of Andrew, and Eddie, you’re my hero. Congratulations to you both. You inspire us.

  6. Congratulations to Eddie and Andrew! You both make a great story that touched my heart. I was never able to attend any of my convocations (on three occasions). I always read convocation stories with lot of interest. Best wishes to Andrew in his future endeavors!

  7. We done Andrew! You made your family and Area 2 proud. Wish I could’ve been there for graduation. It was also a pleasure to work with you and your crew at Student Productions throughout the last 2 Years.
    Your dad is a good man and I am very happy to have him as the overnight lead at the GSU and rest of the area, real team player and organizer.
    All the best in your bright new future! Bill and Amy, great video!

Let us all work as a global village to And support each other to succeed!
