Day 172: Blast from My Past

This former student of mine is a Gates Millenium Scholar, one of 1,000 nationwide.

This former student of mine is a Gates Millenium Scholar, one of 1,000 nationwide.

I found out recently that a former student of mine earned the Gates Millenium Scholarship to attend University of Georgia in the fall. The kid played JV soccer and I always found him to be not only athletically talented but also an honorable young man. Tonight, I learned he needs some help getting set up in his dorm room at UGA. In response, my former colleague and his English teacher has set up a fundraising drive to help the kid get his dorm room set up. It was awesome seeing his name again and being able to help send him off to college.

He’s the second kid from that team I coached to win the Gates Millenium Scholarship. The other one is in his first year at Oglethorpe.
