John and I met mom and dad in Dallas for a conference PA conference where I received a scholarship from the Texas PA Foundation.
Here I am receiving my award. There is a check in that envelope! Yippee!
Here I am with my chairman and classmates receiving a $14,000 donation from the Texas PA Foundation for Hurricane Ike relief. They had a very nice presentation about our program and students surviving despite adversity. They even gave us a standing ovation. It was all very nice. We are so grateful to this organization. They also came to our classes shortly after the hurricane with LOTS of supplies. I got gift cards, kleenexes, toothbrushes, hand sanitizers, blankets, pillows, sheets, scrubs, etc.
Here is my support team. Mom, Dad, and John were so wonderful watching me get the award. They all sat through a lecture just to be able to see me receive the award.
