The whole event went super slick. He didn't pull Kaylin aside at all. He his us in the office while he ushered the entire freshman class (about 200) into the auditorium. After they got seated, he slid us in the back of the room. Kaylin never seen us. Then they started the short program by explanation of the whole essay contest, then read the winning essay. Kaylin said after a few sentences that she realized it was her's, then they called her name. Once up on stage, she saw us in the back. The instant it was done, she RAN to the back with us. My parents & Teresa's parents were there with us, plus my 2nd oldest daughter who is an RN. She was SO proud of herself, and rightfully so. We are all so proud of her. I had some moisture in the corners of my eyes building up.
The pic shows the amount she won. She is so excited she is beside herself. Gonna be a chatty night tonight! BTW George....right there taking the pics, she said to tell you she's earned a GTT
Really, she did! But don't worry, I'll be placing an order for her one soon. I may do that tonight. Not that I have extra money, but gonna give her $100 tonight as a bonus. She's done so good, and want to let her see what working hard earns. That'll leave $300 in my savings acct., so doing good in my world!
I am one proud Poppa! My 2nd oldest, Krissa is on the right.
