During the course of the four years of high school, these kids get up at 5:30am every morning to attend a bible study class before the start of school.
That's no easy task.
But an awesome way to start the day.
Every year at graduation time, there is a special ward called the Stake President's Award given to students who do a little bit extra.
This year, all of these kids worked so darn hard to get that thing together.
For weeks on end, my kitchen was paced back and forth by teens trying their hardest to memorize some really long scripture verses.
There was a scripture book left in every nook and cranny.
And they did it! Even had to memorize the entire First Vision which is no easy feat.
I was cleaning out some things after graduation and came across his study journal.
It was chocked full of great thoughts and inspiration. He had the best teacher this year. She was one of a kind and went above and beyond her call to serve.
Celia graduated four years as a Stake President's Award recipient.
This is a picture of me as a messy puddle because all of those graduates closed the meeting by singing a medley of "As Sister's In Zion" and "The Armies of Helaman".
I totally lost it.
Such a great group of kids.
And young women.
I couldn't be more grateful for the strength they received every morning before heading into each new day.
