A Message From Stacey Nance
It's our yearly Stacey & Bayasa update. Well - really just a Bayasa update. My life isn't nearly as interesting. I get to live vicariously through Bayasa's adventures.
We are approaching our 12 year friend-a-versary this year. What a treat to watch her grow up over the years! She grown from a timid 5th grader to a world travelling, high achieving junior in college. In case you missed last year's update, she's killing it at college. Bayasa attends Indiana University on a full-ride Lilly Scholarship. She's a varsity crew member and an Academic All-Big Ten honor recipient. She travels abroad each summer coaching, teaching, and taking courses. This past summer was Capetown. She's focusing on International studies and is thinking about the LSAT and law school. Ah, to be young again with the world at your feet!
She's not only an impressive student and athlete -she's a really nice person too. This past spring, she snuck into town and surprised me at a work event. She helped celebrate my 20 year work anniversary by giving a moving speech about our match to a 200 person audience. I can't imagine a better gift!
Bayasa is a amazing young woman who has worked hard for all her achievements. She has a great support system around her, cheering her along the way. I believe that every young person can achieve success with the right amount of encouragement and support. I hope you'll consider donating to my Bowl For Kids' Sake campaign to help give another young person a chance to connect with a mentor. This world is tough! Young people need all the supportive adults around them as possible.
Thank you for your generosity! You can check off your good deed for today!
