A Banner Day

Yesterday was a banner Day for Bonnie.  First she got to wear her new uniform to work.  I would love to get a job in town just so I could wear a dirndl.  Lol....   In the afternoon Bonnie had an interview for a scholarship she had applied for.  We didn't know what to expect but walked down to City Hall for the interview.  In short, we found out that the scholarship was not for high school students but for non-traditional students, I.e. Those who have been out of school for a while and wanted to return.  However, the organization was so impressed by Bonnie that they decided to give her a financial gift of a thousand dollars and asked for her to attend their meeting later this summer.  What a blessing!  After we got home Bonnie went online to check out her WSU account page and found that she has $14000 in grants and scholarships from the state.  This doesn't include her DYWL scholarship nor the gift she received today.  She also has several other scholarships she is waiting to hear back from.  In short, next years tuition is paid for and over half of the following year.  Yes, it was a Banner Day for this high achieving, hard working daughter of mine.  I am so proud!
