The Stamp of approval
It has been several weeks, months even, since I’ve gotten accepted to the ILC program and to the Columbia Presidential Powers Class. I’ve planned my summer around the agenda but in the back of my mind I’ve known that it may not happen. Though ILC had to get approved by the District Board, I was confident that the prestigious, generous program would pass. Nonetheless, there was still that “what if?”. Pending the notification that it passed, my summer was still uncertain.
However, last night we, the participants of the ILC, received the approval and endorsement by members of the Board: Ms. Audrey Miles, Mr. Antonio Medrano, Mr. Tony Thurmond and District Superintendent Dr. Bruce Harter. Much gratitude is given to these dedicated and compassionate members along with Mr. Ramsey, Ms. Kronenberg and Don Gosney for their never-ending support.
Finally, my summer is true and definite. I will certainly take advantage of the situation and experience the Ivy Leagues in honor of these great people!
