30 Words :: Honored

means far more
you were recommended,
you applied,
you sought this honor
you achieved this yourself
So proud of the incredible young man
you are 

My son, Calvin was inducted into the National Honor Society at the year end awards ceremony this morning. I had no idea that he was even considered for this honor until I received the invitation on my dashboard on Monday morning (so sad his dad had to miss it...on business in Prague!). With the reading of the NHS pledge, he is starting to lay the foundation for his next big leap, and I couldn't be more proud of the young man that was standing before me. Congratulations to Calvin and all of his Junior and Senior classmates on this great honor!

I pledge to maintain my high scholastic standing,
To hold as fundamental and worthy
An untarnished character,
To endeavor intelligently and courageously
To be a leader,
And to give of myself freely in service to others.
In so doing, I shall prove myself worthy
Of a place in the National Honor Society.

The premise of 30 Words Thursdays is simple...

Write 30 Words about it. No more. No less.

Post it each Thursday.
