This is my best Colorado friend, Sarah
Today she graduated Summa Cum Laude from CU with a BA in Biochemistry.
She invited me to go to the ceremony and be there with all of her family. After all the announcements had been made about the graduates with honors, they presented special awards to the graduating class. The first one they bestowed was an award for the student who had outstanding performance as an undergrad and the most potential for research in pursuing a further degree.
When they announced that the award was offered to Sarah our entire table audibly gasped with shock. She did know anything about the award.
As she went up to the front of the room to receive her certificate and $1,000 worth of chemistry software I started to tear up. I've never felt so proud of any of my friends in my entire life.
She truly is No. 1!
