He made it! Still sick, though – buggers…..
For some reason, I never blogged about my home schooled children’s high school graduations. Here is my youngest, who graduated this past May (2015).
This writeup is what i submitted to the newspaper. The photo, however, is one we took on the front porch after he had his hair cut.
Having completed 12 years of home education, Nathan Allen Powell, rural Laclede, MO graduates high school with a 4.0 GPA, Summa Cum Laude. Nathan is the son of Allen and Tauna Powell. He has received Bright Flight scholarship (having scored 33 on ACT) and the President’s Competitive Award ($20,000) from Northwest Missouri State University at Maryville, MO where he will be pursuing a 4-year MBA degree in International Business through NWMSU’s CATapult program – CATapult is an accelerated program designed for high-achieving freshmen to complete a bachelor’s degree and a Master of Business Administration within four years.

So thankful for modern technology: Skyped (3-way skyping, so cool) with daughter, Jessica Powell and son, Nathan at 8a this morning, so she could tell me about her first day teaching her kindergarten students (she teaches at GEMS Dubai American Academy, so is 9 hours ahead of us) and so we could both send Nathan best wishes on his first day at Northwest Missouri State University (first class at 11am is accounting).
Interesting class she has: 22 students representing Sweden, UAE, US, Canada, France, Jordan, Germany, and somewhere else i can’t remember. All speak English and some speak 3 or more languages! Kids these days…… Totally different than Tegucigalpa where the first several weeks were spent teaching English.
