Scholarship Nominee

We were surprised and delighted to find out that Stella was nominated for the Brother Bob Anderson Scholarship at school this year.  She was nominated in the kindergarten through second grade category.  The nominees are chosen by their teachers based on their spiritual and academic growth throughout the school year, as well as their embodiment of the qualities a model PBS student should exhibit.  While Stella did not win the scholarship, we were ecstatic that her teachers recognized these positive traits in her...
Mawmaw and Pawpaw attended chapel with us to see Stella receive her certificate...
As parents, we try to instill Christ-like character traits in our children, but many times it feels like we are falling short.  It was so nice to get this affirmation from an outside source that when our kids are away from us they are not always acting like total heathens.

Congratulations, Stella!  We are very proud of you!
