A lot of family stories get lost in the daily grind of living life. So I am going to use my blog to share some of these stories I forgot to tell them when they were younger.
I actually made the newspaper three times in my life. Unfortunately I didn't save the dates or the names of the newspapers they were published in but I have the little articles and I can guesstimate the year.
|Mary Made the President's List BCC|
I did make the President's list every semester I was at Broward Community College earning my Associates Degree in Science in Nursing. I suspect this was my first term.
When I interviewed by the Dean of the School of Nursing she was not impressed with my high school grades and I was told I would have to prove myself before I would be considered for acceptance into the nursing program. I remember telling her I had been the student of the year in the LPN program I attended and had a straight A average from the vocation school I went to. Her reply was, that was only equivalent to a 10th grade education and not on a college level. Believe me I lived that year of school, there was no way it was like a 10th grade high school class, it was a lot harder. I believe this article was at the end of the fall term in 1970.
