Glad Grad!

June 5th, 2010 | Posted in General

It’s a busy day in the Richmond household today as my daughter, The Dramatic Victoria, graduates with honors from Eastview High School. She has taken home many honors during her high school years, including being in the National Honor Society and National German Honor Society, winning the Presidential Academic Award, lettering in academics and choir, selection to Minnesota All-State Choir, superior ratings in vocal music performance, parts in all the fantastic musicals put on by Eastview, selection to the Lake Conference choir and the highly regarded Eastview Chamber Choir.

Despite all that she is looking forward to saying goodbye to high school and will be attending college at Concordia College in Moorhead, MN, which is nationally renown for it’s music program. Victoria sings like an angel (as do I with the difference that she can do it with other people around and for some reason I sing like a frog when within earshot of anyone) and she was awarded the top music scholarship at Concordia, where she will major in vocal music education and possibly minor in German language.

We are enormously proud of her, and congratulate her on her many achievements and those yet to come. We love you, Victoria!
