Becky now refers to herself as a hot commodity because she gets so many letters, every single day, from colleges wanting her to come there. Yesterday alone she got 10 letters! ISU and South Dakota State have both offered her Honors Programs and automatic scholarships if she comes there. She hasn't even applied at Briar Cliff and they offered her $9000 a year, every year! It amazes me how much these colleges are willing to offer to get her to attend, I am guessing I will not have to be paying a thing for her education...woohoo! Brian of course could have gotten all these offers as well, if only he had applied himself when he was in high school...he is learning the hard way that he should have done that, and he will learn even harder when he has to pay back the student loans! So far she is leaning towards ISU, but she is also having her high school transcripts sent to Morningside and Northwestern this week...so who knows where she will end up. Briar Cliff is a definate no because they don't have a band, "How can you be a music major at a college with no band?" Of course, she has to graduate first, she found out she is one credit short on her requirements for social studies, so somehow has to fit that in before the end of the year. Her plan is to take it independently...but she has no free class periods so I am not sure how that will all work out, she is hoping to take it at the same time she is taking independent yearbook. I think any college will be lucky to get her, but then again, I am a little prejudiced!

    I agree any college will be lucky to get her. That is why they are offering her these scholarships. Her grades are really good and she is in about every activity the school offers. That looks really good on a college application. Carrie said Taylor was sent a letter that she could be inducted into National Honor Society and Carrie is worried that Taylor doesn't have all the extra activities to qualify.

    Becky will do justice to any thing she does or any college she attends. Keep up the good work, Becky and you will go far. Go after those goals you want and I know you will get it. We are very proud of you.
