I AM NOW the mother of a high school graduate..

Patrick Johnston/Times Record News

Anthony was the first in his family to graduate from high school!! 

He also made history by being the first "LITTLE" from 

the Big Brothers and Big Sisters program of Wichita Falls to

 graduate High School! 

There was a HALF page article done about him and his big in the 

Sunday June 2nd Times and Record News!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
You can watch him walking across the stage in this VIDEO
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
This graduation was very special because from the time he stared school most of his
 teachers and counselors told me that he would never  make it to graduate.

 Anthony has many learning disabilities. His hardest one to overcome is dyslexia. 
It has made it very hard for him to read and then understand what he had just read. 
He has struggled with school and homework since day one. 
He was determined to show them all that they were very wrong about him!
He knew he would make it!!

Well YOU GO, son!!

You did it Anthony and I am so proud to be your mommy:)

You are going to be an AWESOME MARINE!!
I am going to miss you when you ship out:(
