This just came through today in the email newsletter. More than $2.7 million in scholarships awarded to the Class of 2011. The valedictorian scored big with the Regent’s and Chancellor’s scholarships for a full ride at UC Berkeley. One student is getting a full scholarship to Columbia and yet another is getting a full ride to Howard. That’s what I’m talking about!
And I guess I should also mention Jason Kidd, the basketball phenom who put our no-name school in the burbs on the map. The championship eluded him since winning back-to-back state in ’91 and ’92. This week, he got that NBA championship he very well deserves. Congrats Jason! Because of you, basketball is the only sport I actually understand and enjoy. Unless you count gymnastics and figure skating. Those are sports, right? And cheerleading. Don’t forget cheerleading!
