Planting seeds

Tonight's post will be a short one. We're selecting a winner of the scholarship we give each year to a senior at our alma mater who has college plans. 
This year is the ninth year we've awarded the scholarship. Our first recipient went on get not only his bachelor's degree but his masters. He graduated from film school last year and is working in the field of music.

Yesterday when I mentioned the scholarship to a friend she said, "Giving scholarships to students is like planting seeds." That thought resonated with me so the column I wrote today for 
Sunday's paper is a piece about planting seeds. I'll run it next Monday.

I hope you all have had a great hump day.


  1. I like that too. What a nice way to say it. Looking forward to reading your column.

  2. Knowing where to plant seeds is a great insight.
    I know some young person appreciates every penny of the scholarship. Many worthy folk would have never seen the inside of a college were it not for foresight of groups like yours. Good on Y'all!

    Bud & I sponsor a scholarship. Sometimes that is the ONLY way someone can further his education!!

  4. Planting seeds is a good metaphor for many things, including giving out scholarships.

  5. What a great thing to do ! Scholarships. I've always admire those who do this.

  6. Oh... how on earth can you decide which senior will receive the scholarship? I'm not sure I could do it.

  7. Great thing to do and a great benefit to those who receive these scholarships. I wonder where I would have been if I had had that opportunity. Trouble was, when I left school I thought there were only a few careers open to me and I certainly didn't have a lot of ambition anyway.
