Awards Season

Along with all of the milestones we've been celebrating the past few weeks, now that the school year is coming to an end, we're also in the thick of "awards season." Georgia's just been recognized with journalism and academic awards, and then the biggest news, she was awarded a scholarship from the Savannah College of Art and Design! So our budding artist will spend a week this summer at SCAD!

We've got a cool road trip planned to get her out to Georgia, and it will be a nice break from the two college(!) courses she's taking this summer. She's officially a senior in a couple of weeks ...

State UIL Awards for Journalism!
2nd place for her MLK Day photo essay, and Honorable Mentions in Entertainment 
for her Star Wars review and in Sports for her swim essay!

ARS Academic Excellence!

Georgia also spent the past week as an intern at a local PR firm. The entire junior class interviewed with a variety of businesses and organizations, and they all went to work in their pathways of media technology, engineering, or biomedical science. Georgia loved the job and the environment, and they must have loved having her because they gave her the key to the place on the first day! It was such a great experience for all of the girls and just may influence their future career plans. Just another reason we're so grateful that Georgia and Ivy both get to attend such an amazing school!

And a friendly reminder - Bald Georgia shirts are available once again until MAY 31st!
