Will our Scholar Get the Dollars??




Alan and I spent the day at LaGrange College with our son, Taylor, who was invited to participate in their Presidential Scholarship Competition. While he agonized over his essay and endured two interviews with faculty members, we relaxed, did some reading, attended a panel discussion for parents, and enjoyed the beautiful campus. Then, we were reunited for a delicious dinner and "debriefing" in the dining hall. It was a good day. Now all we can do is WAIT . . .






There appeared to be about 50 students competing for the coveted cash. All of them outstanding scholars, athletes and leaders in their high schools. There are only two Presidential Scholarships being awarded. So, we ALL anxiously WAIT . . .


Taylor spent last Saturday at Shorter College, doing essentially the same thing. So, we AWAIT those results as well . . .


WAITING is hard! Who will win the scholarships??? Will our scholar get the dollars???

Yes, waiting is hard. Not knowing is hard. Can't wait to hear if your son gets a scholarship.

For those who've asked -- Taylor did not get one of the top scholarships, but he did get a pretty good academic scholarship, which will cover about 90% of his tuition. Praise God!
