Congratulations, Hilary!!

Last night we attended the Shasta College 2009 Induction Service for Phi Theta Kappa. Here's a re-cap of the night, told through pictures. For those of you who missed my blog on Hilary's acceptance, I will, once again, quote from a letter Hilary received: "Congratulations on your academic achievement! As a result of your dedication to scholarly success, the Phi Theta Kappa chapter on this campus extends to you membership in the International Honor Society of two-year colleges. Membership eligibility is based on the number of hours you have completed and your outstanding GPA; therefore, membership is a special honor afford to a small group of outstanding students..."
