Last night I had the honor of presenting a scholarship award to a high school student on behalf of my family. My parents created the "Kaysy's Kids Scholarship" in my sister's honor & this is the first year of what will be an annual gift. We (my parents, my sister Marci & I) reviewed the applications & essays that were submitted from students at the high school my parents both attended. We chose that high school over the one my sisters & I attended, as it gets an exceptionally lower number of scholarship awards available, so we felt the money would be better served there.
My sister had work commitments and my parents had previous commitments with an Autism fundraiser in conjunction with the Cardinals last night. So while they were schmoozing with David Freeze, Matt Carpenter, Mike Methany & Tony LaRussa... I was presenting this scholarship on my family's behalf.
Next year, they get to give out the award while I go stalk David Freeze. Ahem.
The 3-leaf clover logo has been used for many things since my sister passed away... and D, K, M is my sister's & my initials...
It was definitely a "feel good" night.
Happy Friday & I hope you all have a FANTASTIC weekend!
