All Worth It!


Each year, our school presents one senior that was a former student of our school with a scholarship.  Tonight, I had the honor of announcing the recipient of the East Lincoln Elementary Scholarship...one of my former students.

I don't particularly like public speaking but it went ok...and I was not going to turn this chance blessing down!  I don't remember everything I said, but I do remember describing this young man when I had him in third grade.  I will always remember him with a huge smile on his face.  He was full of hopes and dreams even in third grade, and I knew he would go far!  He has accomplished so much in his high school years...and will continue doing so as he heads off to Belmont College on a scholarship, as well!

Actually, I had the pleasure of teaching all of the kids in this precious family!  They are all doing great things!  Great kids!  Great parents!    Me...blessed!!!  This is what it's all about!

Feeling extremely blessed tonight!
