award for music citizenship. We're really proud of him --
he's an amazing person. Sam was absolutely dedicated to
his high school, and participated in as many activities as
he possibly could. His focus was definitely strongly
tied to the arts -- so he was in the band, and played the
lead in several plays. But he also took part in leadership
weekends, and joined Crime stoppers.
Sam the joyous graduate
receiving his award
We've been associated with his high school for 12 years,
because his older brother went to the same school,
and set the pattern of high involvement that Sam
followed. So I was sad when we walked out the doors
of the old school after the long commencement to think
that we might not go there again.

Meanwhile Sam's in university and life moves on.
Have a loving-to-learn day.
