This week has already started off with some rocky moments, but the Lord sent us an unexpected blessing yesterday. Every year, one of the professors at the College presents a list of graduating seniors who have achieved a certain GPA. I think it is 3.75 or 3.8. From that list, the faculty are asked to select those students they feel should represent the College in the year's "Who's Who in American Colleges and Universities." John Boy was on the list. We had no idea whether he would be chosen--the list is made up of the top vote-getters. It is more than a popularity contest--it is more than an academic one--it comes back to character and conduct as well as grades.
John Thomas was selected.
This accolade means more to me than many others because it demonstrates that dependability, honesty, kindness and integrity are recognized and prized.
The Lord has been with us this year in so many ways--in every way.
