On Monday morning, before classes even started, Markus, a senior, came into my room and gave me an envelope with my name on it.
"What's this?" I said, as I began to open it.
"You'll see," he said.
A little white dog running like crazy was on the front of the card. Inside, it said "help is on the way!" Under it, he has written: "The Army to the rescue! I just received a call from a staff sergeant Haan from the University of Dubuque ROTC unit. They are offering me a full scholarship. I want to thank you, because I never could have achieved this without you or AVID Thank you for Everything, Markus"
Awwww!! I gave him a big hug. "It was just like you said," he said. "The college has scholarships to give themselves."
The next day, his mother saw me and said that the night he got the call, he insisted that his mother go out and buy him a card for me! :-)
