Once in a Lifetime Educational Trip

  My son is one of the most industrious and motivated people I know. I am so proud of all of his accomplishments thus far. Shawn is always busy, if he is not going to a high school class, working on something for a college class or working, he is helping a friend or a perfect stranger. He has a 3.5 GPA at Cuthbertson High School and a 4.0 GPA at South Piedmont Community College. He has the best manners when dealing with people in general and has a soft spot for the elderly and children.
     An opportunity came up at school that suited Shawn to a tee, but I knew we could not afford to send him alone. He has been accepted into a summer student exchange program in Dublin, Ireland which focuses in global entrepreneurship. He will spend three weeks in July learning leadership skills and business with a focus in global economy.
     The goal we have set is high, but this covers the cost of three weeks of room and board, airfare and some pocket money. We want to thank you very much in advance for making a dream for a really good, promising young man come true.
