Audrey's Big Day

Thursday was Audrey's 8th Grade Graduation and Awards Assembly.  She and Emily attend Ben Franklin Science Academy in Muskogee, a science magnet school.  Since it is a Kindergarten through 8th grade, they have a ceremony to advance the kids on to high school.  I am really happy they get to be a part of something like this.  The school I grew up in was like that; Lone Star in Sapulpa, OK.

They had an entry ceremony complete with "Pomp and Circumstance".

Audrey received the "Top Social Studies Student" from Diane Walker, Oklahoma Supreme Court's 2010 Teacher of the Year.

The "core teachers" lined up to congratulate the 8th graders. This school truly has a small town flavor to it that makes everyone family.

Among her many awards, Audrey was Top Social Studies Student, Top Math Student, Superintendent's Honor Roll and class co-valedictorian.

Mom and Dad are very proud of their older daughter, not just for the awards she's won, but because of her commitment to follow God.
