Sterling Scholar 2014

When Princess was in 10th grade she decided she wanted to be a Sterling Scholar. I don't know if they have this program outside the state of Utah, but here it is a huge deal! Each high school is allowed to choose one representative in each of about 14 categories to compete in the state competition. It is the best of the best and highly coveted. Most of the schools here offer automatic scholarships to winners.

The program has been going on for many years. I was a Sterling Scholar in English for my high school back in 1983 which is practically the Dark Ages. Four of my children have chosen to apply for this honor during their senior year and Teach was the only one who managed to receive it.

Until today.

Princess was named the Sterling Scholar for the Family and Consumer Sciences Department at Bingham High School, arguably the biggest school in the state. I was so proud of her! She set this goal and then never turned her eyes from the prize. She became an FCCLA officer, started her own Cupcake Club, and took pretty much every class offered by the FACS department. She was truly diligent in her preparation and today it paid off.

Now she has to make a large digital portfolio of her achievements to present at the state competition. That shouldn't be a problem. She has clear until the 13th of January...

there's just Christmas, Nutcracker, wedding...

hope she doesn't need my help.

Just kidding, Princess. You know I've got your back. So proud of you!
