I Got Full Tuition!!!!

I went to the awards banquet today for the competion I was in and I was awarded full tuition, books, uniform, and knife kit for the bunker hill community college. Also I was awarded the AFC Epicurean club of boston 1000 dollar cash award. Also another kid in my class who has been in the competion 3 times got full 80,000 dollar tuition for 4 years at J&W and a friend of mine from another city got a full scholarship to CIA! I'm so glad that everyone has oppritunities these days to go to school.

Congratulations! I know you are excited! My son received a $24,000 scholarship to college next year so I know how you must feel. Good luck in your studies!

Way to go, tsi!!! I hope you feel proud of yourself. Obviously your potential was recognized. Just keep on working toward your goal. You'll be there before you know it.

And, since your birthday was February 27th, isn't this a nice way to begin a new year? Congratulations!!

Fantastic, tsi!

What high school(s) do you and your friends attend, that prepare you all for these great cooking scholarships?

I live in a town adjacent to yours and am just curious.
