Mother, son duo excelling after graduation

In their Christmas card, the Lutz family characterized 2017 as “a year filled with healing and growth, even in baby steps.”

It’s been a long road since Terry Lutz walked across the stage to receive his wife’s diploma. Sharon had been in a horrific car accident with their son, Bryan. The accident happened just a few days before Sharon and Bryan were set to graduate together with business management degrees from the IU Kelley School of Business at IUPUI. Bryan was able to walk in the ceremony to receive his diploma, but Sharon was still in the hospital.

“I had been looking forward to our graduation ceremony for so long; it would be such a special moment for Bryan and me. But having Terry there on my behalf was special, as well; I was so glad he was there,” said Sharon.
