Haven't contacted you since my senior, Bryan, was accepted into the University of North Carolina School of the Arts in April! The School of Filmmaking is a fairly exclusive program and I am so very proud of him! His interview went very well (Bryan's a strong "people person"!) but I understand that they interviewed him with his "Comprehensive High School Record" open in their possession, referring to details within it during the interview! Wow - what fun to know that all that work was of value to them in their job of selecting candidates for their program. Thank you, Lee, for the unspeakably big help you were in that whole process of my documenting his high school years!
I attached Bryan's picture - do you remember us? I'm the RN mom who had spent the previous 5 years caring for my mom before she passed, and had done NO course descriptions until I started fall of last year!! Nightmare! - but your help and guidance got me through it beautifully (although exhausted) in time to submit it all in December! Well - my rising 10th and 11th graders are NOT going to be in the same place by the time THEIR applications are rolling - this mom's got some SERIOUS templates to work from: my son's transcript template, lots of course descriptions needing only updating/grades/etc, and multitudes of know-how, *thanks to my personal HomeScholar tutor!

Sometimes, I post something that really strikes the heart of my readers. An old post I had about measuring character qualities other than academic ones, was one of those posts.
