Great news!

I just found out tonight that I won Virginia Tech's Graduate Student Service Excellence Award. I was having somewhat of a terrible day, because I've been sick all week. Combine that with writing my farewell speech for Miss Hill City and packing for that, I've been bummed out! I'm really going to miss hanging out with my committee and all the special work I did as Miss Hill City (which is part of the reason I won this award).

And just to show that this system is not just about competing, one of my nominators for this award was Stephanie Connelly, a fantastic contestant and fellow VT student.

I'll be recognized at an award ceremony with March and I am receiving $1,000 for this special honor! What a great turnaround to this day.

Remember how I told you shortly ago that you were destined for bigger and better things?

I believe it's just the beginning!
