I know first hand raising or should I say…trying to raise… an athlete is hard…there’s a million lessons in focus alone, much less the constant promise of success IF you work hard. So when I meet a senior who is experiencing the fruits of their labor I find myself in a club not many are blessed to be a part of….and I find myself as happy for them as they are for themselves. And so it is for Hayden…not only beautiful but “blessed” to be heading to college as a member of “the next level” All those years of little league, travel ball, and school ball and work in the classroom will find her walking across the stage in May with a little pep in her softball walking step
Congratulations on your scholarship and I thank you for making me part of your senior year in high school… I am so very glad you were standing next to me at homecoming and I was excited as ever when you so sweetly asked if I would “take your senior pictures” I hope I made you proud…I know I and a lot of folks in this town are proud of you!!!!
