We had such an AMAZING response to our blog contest. As you might recall, our contest question was:
"How will creating an AMAZING transcript
help my child achieve their dreams?"
We had over 60 responses and they ranged from over-the-top creative to matter-of-fact statements. All were heartfelt and sincere. After much deliberation (and some debate) we are giving the prize to Morgan! Her entry was a heartfelt request for a Christmas present for her mother, Ellen. Morgan wins the 4-Step Total Transcript Solution. Here is what Morgan wrote:

My desire is to have a career that not only meets my needs, but also the needs of others. Because my future success is based on my education, attending college is important to me. I feel that God is calling me to make a difference by pursuing my dream of becoming a pediatrician. A well-written transcript will be a determining factor of whether or not I can achieve my goal. This being the first time that my mom has ever sent a child to college, I am sure this tool would be just what she needs to make what may seem like a daunting task a positive experience. (I would like to give her this for Christmas.)
