In September I was selected as the BB&T Scholar Athlete of the week. It was awarded during one of the locally televised Friday Night Rivals games. During the football season two players are selected from each team from schools from Palm Beach, Martin, and St. Lucie Counties in Florida. My parents told me we had to go to the BB&T Bank today because they were going to give all the kids their plaques. We go to the bank and head upstairs. When I get out of the elevator a guy comes up and hooks me up with a mic. I thought wow what's up with that? So he tells me and my parents and grandparents to go in the door across the hall. When I opened the door there are like 6 or 7 people inside and two of them are holding this HUGE $5000 check.... with MY name on it! Talk about shocked! I was so surprised. I never had any idea, mainly because my dad told me a month ago that a girl from another school had won. He told me later he misread the date in the article and turns out she won last year. HAHA Wow what a cool day and my birthday was last Sunday. Great present, huh.
