First family of film
Cassie Fahey could have easily completed the requirements for her master's degree in film studies and graduated this spring, but she decided to wait. Instead, she sat with her family on the Quadrangle as her youngest son, Kevin, received his bachelor of arts degree in film studies. Last year, Fahey sat in the same place to see her older son, Sean, graduate in--that's right--film studies.
"We're just a bunch of cinephiles," says Kevin. "It's nice to sit around and talk with a professor about a particular movie or scene, but I prefer doing it with family."
While Kevin has set his sights on a career in screenwriting and directing, Sean will begin studies at the Emory School of Law next fall with the aim of becoming an entertainment lawyer. Cassie, who earned a master's degree in library science from Emory in 1988, currently works at Oxford College as an archivist and film collection librarian.--A.O.A.
