Last night was the Sr. Awards Night at our High School. Dallin was awarded the$350.00 Hal Pfeiffer Memorial Scholarship (football), President's Education Awards program, High Honors Award, California Scholarship Federation, BYU Scholarship! CONGRATS Dallin!!!
This is his football coach awarding him with the scholarship.
This is one of the councilors presenting him with the President's Education Award. This was sent to him from the White House and has our President's signature. To earn this you have to have over a 3.8 GPA AND be in the top 10% scores in the nation on the ACT or SAT tests.
I was really bummed but the picture I took of him getting the Gold Cords to wear with his cap and gown tonight at graduation was blurred. To earn these cords you have to have over a 3.5 GPA. To be honest I was bummed that they didn't give a different cord to the students that had over a 4.0! Oh, well...
Here is Dallin being presented with the embroidered honor stole for the California Scholarship Federation. (again for grades)
They also announced his scholarship from BYU. Here are a few pics that we took after the Awards assembly...
Grandma & Grandpa Bergquist, thank you for coming! Obviously Grandma & Grandpa Measles couldn't come, but dad sent him one of his Bolo Ties to wear tonight at Graduation. In fact... Dallin and many of his friends are wearing BOOTS tonight for Grandpa!
These kids have been REALLY close all thru middle school and high school. They are all graduating together tonight!!! GOOD JOB GUYS!!! WE are so proud of you and wish you only the best in your college experiences!!! We love you!!!
Siuta made Dallin this beautiful lei!!! It is the prettiest one I have ever seen! THANK YOU Siuta!!!
Sorry if this came across as a little "braggy" but this is my journal!!!
I want to thank everyone that has helped mold Dallin into the man he has become... his grandparents, his siblings, his leaders and teachers (including seminary and church!!!), and his GOOD friends (they have been a wonderful group of kids that have helped support and encourage each other to be the good people that they are today!)
Congratulations, son! You truly are amazing! I love you!!! ~mom
