Senior portraits of 2015 Anahuac grad--
It's that time of year again. High school seniors across the nation are celebrating as they've either just walked across the stage less than a week ago, or they're going to walk that stage this coming Friday night at graduation. There's no doubt a crazy mix of emotions ranging from excitement to anxiety, nostalgia to anticipation, as these grads end their childhood and most of their teenage years of education, athletic adventures, youth groups, musical and theatrical performances, UIL competitions, and showing and judging animals. Some grads will go into the workforce, others have already signed up to join the Armed Forces (God Bless You!), some will start their secondary education in junior colleges and others will head off to larger universities. For some seniors, they'll be blessed to not only start on their secondary education but to continue pursuing passions that were developed during their primary education years.
This Friday night will be an especially proud moment for our family as my cousin Austin gets to walk across the stage and receive his diploma. Not only has Austin completed his high school years with a pretty shiny academic record landing him in the top ten of his class, but he's also received a scholarship from Blinn College so he can continue pursuing his love of livestock judging (for which many of the awards pictured were earned), on top of many other hefty scholarships for his academic and livestock endeavors.
Our whole family is so proud of you and all of your accomplishments, Austin. Can't wait to see the plans God has in store for your future! Blessings to all the other grads out there. Cherish your past and embrace your new beginning!
