Thanks so much for your well wishes sent to Eliza.:-) Wednesday night was like magic! 13 of us were wildly cheering in the audience at the huge ShoWare Center in Kent, WA as she entered the arena and then later walked across the stage with Jenni Sandler to receive her one year Achieve certificate. What an accomplishment!!! We were beyond proud of all Eliza has achieved and send a huge THANK YOU to Ashleigh (her Housemate), Erika (her best friend since they were both 5!), Julie and Jenni (two incredible individuals at Highline who have continuously believed 100% in Eliza!) Aunt Trudy, my cousins Janet, Margi and Anna, friends Jim and Grace Crary (from the Greensprings and passing through from Alaska to Oregon!) and Kevin (Erika's finance) for all being there with Wilder, Isaac, Ron and me to watch Eliza reach her dream of both going to and graduating from college!!!
Here is a link to some photos!

Eliza and we all will cherish the growth that she has been allowed to experience among her college friends. As Eliza would say, "College ROCKS!"
Thank you Highline!!!!
Thanks to you all for the role each have played in helping Eliza reach this dream. There will no doubt be many more dreams to come!!!
Eliza and Jenni! Way to go Eliza!
