My niece April graduated from college this morning. Last night, I celebrated her achievement along with family and friends at Razorback Pizza.The pretty one is April

Persistence is April's middle name.  She was determined to get her degree.  She found a good fit at U of A Monticello, and along the way she found strength to make it through the hard times.  Her hard work and dedication paid off.  She walked across the stage this morning to receive her Bachelor's Degree in marketing and Public Relations.

April has always been the plucky one. Very positive, easy to make new friends, and always ready to have fun.  She has a bright future ahead of her.  Regardless of what she does next, I trust it will something she loves to do, and that she will go all-out with creativity and passion.

It was great to spend time with April and show my appreciation for her.  It was good to meet her friends who have stuck by her through the years, and visit with family. And the pizza was not half bad. 

Congratulations, April!
