Fairmont High School Senior
There were 21 applicants this year. Greg and Denise Nelson, Donny and Angie were on the selection committee. While there were several deserving candidates, Melanie's essay stood out among the rest. Her sense of humor showed in her writing (like Fort), she was involved in the Spirit Chain for the United Student Body (like Fort). She will paying for her college - working the last two years to save for college. Fort paid for the majority of her college education also. Melanie is a VERY deserving candidate and we are pleased to present her with the 2012 scholarship. She will be attending Wright State University majoring in Mechanical Engineering.

Not an easy day...although Nick, Mere and the boys made me smile...on Saturday. They have been very accommodating when it comes to holidays. They really went overboard this year - I got a beautiful Willowtree statue (that I have begun to collect), it's a mom (grandma)and two little boys,
two butterflies for the gardens and a beautiful wall hanging with a letter to "mom"...PLUS a cashmere sweater (with a breast cancer ribbon) from Mere's mom. Overboard...but SO nice.
(Thanks Nick & Mere, Drew & Max!)
Sunday, off to the boat for some mindless activity...a good way "around" another holiday.
Donny and I took a good friend from Compassionate Friends. (She is not a gambler, but needed to
get away too. She accidently put $5 in a $5 slot maching - and won $100. I told her it was her Mother's Day present from her son! She liked that...)
