Last week, I had the pleasure of watching four students, who also happen to be mothers with children at our campus daycare center, be celebrated for their academic achievements. Each of these women won a presidential award for highly competitive scholarships. Not only am I thrilled that they will be receiving some much-needed money, but also that there was an event in which we had the opportunity to celebrate them. Those hard working student mothers. The women who put their kids to bed, stay up until 3 am studying, pass out on the floor, and get back a few hours later to do it all over again…
And one very special mom earned not one, but TWO coveted scholarships. Guess who? Our very own Amy. Yes, Amy from Amy’s Story. (She told me that when she introduced herself to a member of the Alumni Association a few weeks ago, he responded by saying, “Amy? Amy from Amy’s Story?” She’s famous!)
One more semester to go for Amy before she completes her nursing program. I couldn’t be happier for her and all the other hard working student mamas.
CONGRATS MAMAS! Your perseverance seriously humbles me.
