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".
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.
