A few weeks ago I found out that a grant proposal I had written had been selected, and Herndon ES would receive $2500 to support our STEM program. Dave and I were driving up to Baltimore at the time, and it was welcome news during an otherwise stressful time. I was very excited but not nearly as much as Dave. He is so proud and has been making sure everyone knows about it.
Today we went to a Jazz and Gospel Brunch where the grants were being given out. It was such a great event. There was a jazz ensemble from the Duke Ellington School of the Arts as well as their show choir. The students in both groups blew me away with their incredible talent. Lunch was delicious, and we met the nicest people. Dave took every opportunity to talk up the STEM program and let people know how proud he is. He even interrupted the program ever so briefly so he could take a few pictures of me being given the check from the church’s pastor. I am so lucky to have someone who believes in me and supports me with all of his heart.
