Graduation

This year I have 2 nephews and 1 niece graduating in the class of 2008.
This is my fourth nephew. Meet Bradyn James Norris. (Indian name: Little man who walks tall) He will graduate on Wednesday, May 21st from Desert Ridge High School home of the Jaguar, here in Mesa, Arizona. He is very excited and looking forward to the future.
He was accepted to ASU "Arizona State University". But decided to attend one year at "Chandler/Gilbert Community College" before he serves a mission.
He received 2 Scholarship Awards. The President's Scholarship from Chandler/Gilbert Community College and The Will Smith Memorial Scholarship. Below is a picture of him with Will Smith's mother. Will Smith attended Desert Ridge High School and graduated in 2005. He died along with another student, Joe Onisko. I'm very proud of my nephew. He is a really good kid. He loves his family, friends and has a very strong testimony of the gospel of Jesus Christ.
Seems just like yesterday, that Bradyn would dance around my room to Rod Stewart, in his diaper and sing to Billy Ray Cyrus, Neil Diamond and Queen. As his Aunt (his favorite Aunt) I couldn't be more proud of him. Love ya Bradyn!!
