Proud Nana boasting of granddaughter EMILY WHITE. :smart:

EMILY became a Paint Basket member at age 10, going on 11 in 2012, when we started drawing and painting together and posting her art on my gallery.  She is a gifted artist while I am still learning how to draw. 

Now she’s all grown up and will go to college next fall!!!  She made 17 years old last Aug. 17, got her driver’s license and drives 8 miles to her school every day.

EMILY is one of two seniors from Hawaii Baptist Academy out of 67 students in Hawaii State to qualify as semi-finalists in the National Merit Scholarship Program 2019.  There were 16,000 finalists in the nation chosen from 1.6 million applicants.  They are vying for 31 million dollars in college scholarships from U.S. colleges and universities.  We are SO PROUD of having a National Merit scholar in our family!!!  She is our last and youngest granddaughter to go off to college in the next year!  :'( ~Liz

A day without art is like a day without sunshine.

Liz, what a proud Grandmother you must be.  Congratulations go to you as well, for being such a wonderful example to your grandchildren.
