Newberry College had their ceremony to honor the newest members of Who's who among students at American Universities and Colleges yesterday, and Ty was one of the students named as receiving the award! He was quite excited. He knew that he had been nominated, and had made the "short list", but did not know until yesterday that he had won. Connie and I received a letter from the school 2 weeks ago notifying us that Ty had won, but wanted us to keep it a secret until the ceremony. Of course we did! The purpose of the letter was to make us aware of his winning the award so that we could make arrangements to be present at the awards ceremony.
This was an award that Ty wanted to win. He had it on his "list of things I want to accomplish in college" since he enrolled at Newberry College. I suspect that most things on his list have been checked off by now; he's quite a talented young man. He'll do quite well in the business world!
