College Scholarship

Filed under: Kids — ambercouric @ 11:07 am

Things are kinda crazy today.  Seems like I have at least 1,000 things to do.  I just wanted to make a quick post and say that Kennedy received his first college scholarship yesterday.  The scholarship is for $1,000.  I know it isn’t a large amount but he is still in junior high and only 14. 

I am so proud of him.



  1. Congrats to your 14 year old!

    So, I need to start thinking about the same issues with my 14 year old. Would you consider writing a post on how to obtain scholarships? Your family seems to be good at this sort of thing. It would be nice to see it from a personal perspective. 🙂

  2. I agree, please post any hints. I have a 14 yr old and she wants to be a vet, so scholarships are definately in my future!

  8. Congratulations! That is awesome!! My kids are still really young (4 and 5) so I haven’t even started thinking about scholarships, but I would love to have some tips for the future. Wow!!
