N2N Family News

Great news! Our Rachel, a senior at North Hall High School, won the Zone-level Optimist Oratorical Competition last Saturday. This involved writing and delivering a 5-minute speech on the topic:
"How my optimism helps me overcome obstacles."

The next competition is in three weeks. The winner there goes to State...and a $2500 scholarship! Go, Rach!

More great news! Molly has been accepted in the Towson University School of Jewish Studies graduate program! That's in Baltimore. She'll be earning a Master's degree in Jewish Education.

She's also a finalist for a Wexner Foundation Fellowship, which would take care of all of her expenses. She interviews for that in April. We're pulling for you, Molly!

Whatcha eatin'?
