Phi Theta Kapa is a national honor society for junior college students.To the thrill of her parents, on Friday evening Katy was inducted into this society at a ceremony at Skyline College. Katy’s story is inspiring. Struggling with dyslexia all the way along, after high school she tried college and hated it. She vowed higher education was not for her. She then put in a few years working retail at Good Vibrations in Palo Alto. Something snapped. She’d had enough. So, it was back to school with a determination that has marked her life whenever she makes up her mind.
The pride we felt as she joined these other outstanding students made my buttons pop and tears to flow. Yesterday in the mail, we got a big fat envelope for Katy for Columbia University. Who knows what the future holds, but it sure looks bright.
