Weston has been officially accepted into West Virginia University. I paid his academic deposit the other day and we’re getting ready to submit his housing application. He will be rooming with one of his high school friends. In West Virginia, we’re lucky to have the Promise Scholarship that pays all the tuition and fees for West Virginia students with a 3.0 or above in high school. Weston has also been offered the WVU Rhododenron Scholarship, which will pay $10,000 toward his other expenses. I’m so proud of him! I’m busy with my part-time job applying for federal grants and other scholarships for him. (We’re still waiting to hear about the results of the National Merit Scholarship. He is a semi-finalist.) He’s planning to study math and engineering. His girlfriend is a year behind him in school, but she’s planning to go to WVU, too. At least I know he will be home from Morgantown often his first year–to see the girlfriend! (And, you know, me, accidentally.)
He’s gonna be a Mountaineer!
