I have been going to college for along time now as some of you know. Well last year I was nominated to the international honor society called Phi Theta Kappa but that requires a $65 membership that I just couldnt part with so I had to turn it down, which was kind of a bummer, but then I went to a job fair at our sister campus and ended up with what looks to be a very great job with people that actually care about you. So I'm sitting here minding my own business doing school work wishing it was May 17 which is graduation. When the wife brings me the mail. There is a letter saying congratulations you have been selected by the faculty of IHCC to receive an "Outstanding Student" award. Students must have a 3.5+ GPA, are actively involved in class, campus activities and other students, are good representatives of IHCC, and contribute to making the college a better place. And if that wasn't enough to make you swell with tears and pride in addition they submitted my name to the "Who's who among american junior colleges 2006" And then to put icing on the cake in the same batch of mail $10.00 off a year subscription to the NRA. Couldn't do back flips so I had to share it with my extended family.
