The Graduate


Her she is! Our lovely High School Graduate! The Baby is grown. She has completed her required education and is eager to move on to bigger and better things. Ball State University, in Muncie, Indiana is welcoming her as one of their promising Freshmen Class of 2013.
Her graduation was wonderful. She presented the Staff and Administrators as well as her fellow students and all of us guest, with a warm welcoming speech. She is a natural. Well spoken, never fumbling with names, and keeps the audience listening with interest. She graced the stage with her lean figure and 5 inch heels, with a smile and confidence. She spoke loud and proud.
She is graduating in the top quarter of her class. She served as Class Vice President, Yearbook Editor, Peer Mediator, Natural Helpers, ASL Ambassadors, National Honors Society, Quill & Scroll Honors, Quiz Bowl Team, and several committees. She participated in Cheerleading, Tennis, and Golf.
She was on Homecoming Court both her Freshman & Senior Years.
She was voted "Best Dressed."
She has friends of all walks. She doesn't care the color of your skin, your religion, your sex, or your family background. She never meets a stranger, just a potential friend. She will give you the world.
She will take BSU by storm. The Journalism Department wont know what hit them.
She is an extremely talented young woman and she will succeed in whatever she decides to do.
I love this amazing daughter. I can't wait to watch her fly.
