Good news!

Everytime I get on here I know Fort is up in heaven thinking..."Geez, Ang, get off my blog already." Pam decided it was best for her to be mad at me than her so here goes...

There were recently 2 awards given out in Fort's name...

*The Cincinnati Kelts Rugby Club gave out the Melissa "Fort" McLaughlin Spirit Award to Patty Williams.

*Our alma matter Kettering Fairmont High School gave the the Melissa Fortener McLaughlin "B" Positive Spirit Award to Cassie Sant. Cassie is a tremendous basketball player at Fairmont and is being heavily recruited by a number of schools...Notre Dame to name just one! I am sure that was music to the ears of both Donnie and Nick who are huge Fighting Irish fans!



I believe both are to be annually given awards. At Fairmont there will be a plaque put in the Trent Arena and new award winners will be added to it each year.

I know Fort would have been (and is) honored to have these 2 amazing awards given to such deserving people in her honor...her family and, of course, I could not be more proud!

Thanks for tuning in...as news and updates become available you will be the first to know so keep tuning in!

Lots of love,
Ang
