High Five!

Congrats to my former student, K, on her scholarship, graduation, and new paralegal job at the locally headquartered major national corporation! (I'm trying to keep it anonymous!)

K has an autistic son, a brain-injured son (a car backed over him when he was a toddler), and her husband sustained career-ending injuries as a volunteer firefighter. This lady has more on her plate than I can even begin to imagine, just getting through each day. Managing to get her RN and paralegal degrees while working part time and caretaking for her three men is nothing short of phenomenal. This job will give her both the salary she needs and most importantly, excellent benefits for her family.
