My Nephew (the youngest) made the National Honors Society! I am very happy for him.

As I recall, my tiny high school where I graduated from only had one National Honor Society student (and it wasn't me). I think it's only open to seniors, maybe juniors.

Anyway, it's a great honor, a lot of hard work, and will look great on a resumé!

I know he is a Senior this year...funny, I remember when he was in grade school better. Lovely young man, he'll be helping me do my floor next Spring.
