Academic Award

My youngest daughter is doing amazing in high school. Her marks are in the 80’s and 90’s. The other night she received an Academic Award for having the highest mark in her music/guitar class – a 98!  She LOVES music and has wanted to learn to play the guitar for years now but we could never afford lessons, so when we saw this course in school for free AND she gets credit for it, it was perfect!

This photo was taken after the ceremony in front of the oldest part of her school. This part was built in 1930 and is absolutely gorgeous inside as well as outside. The inside halls all have high wooden baseboards and old wooden doors like the ones on the front in the picture.  Of course the students prefer the newer addition to the “yucky” old part of the school but hopefully someday they’ll realize what a wonderful old building they had to learn in.


Congratulations Shelby! I’m  so proud of you!
