Master Scholar


Yesterday we went to Columbia for Clark's graduation from the Master Scholar's Program. We were amazed to learn that of those who are recognized as Master Scholars (by USC) and end up going there to college, all of them have been accepted into the Honors College. He's talking about going to the Naval Academy though, but it can't hurt his chances of getting in there either! And of course, it's a long time before he commits to college; he's only in 9th grade. Plans can change weekly at this point. But I'm really proud of him for being a curous thinker, a good student, and an all-around great kid.

Whew! I felt much better when I got to the "9th grade" part! I was beginning to think time had really gotten away from me (especially after your gala post with the unsettling comment that the bid on the Russia trip was two years ago! (Congrats to all!!)

What a cutie! Whenever I read or hear what you say about Clark, I always smile. He sounds like a delightful child, and I always think they he would get along smashingly with my 9th grader!
