Cleaning House

No, this isn’t a post about my favorite dusting devices. Nor is it about the fact that I need a vacuum cleaner. Badly.

This is a post about Communications Career Day. I cleaned house.

I didn’t really know what to expect going into the luncheon today, an annual event at which the Communications Department gives out a few scholarships and other awards to its students for their work over the year(s). I guess I thought it would be nice to win a scholarship.

Well, fortunately and maybe amazingly, I won three. It’s basically incredible, because I’m losing my Tennessee Lottery Scholarship after the fall semester. Unless, of course, Tennessee’s lawmakers get off their duff and do something with the scholarship revision legislature instead of passing it from one committee to another, to the Senate/House floor and back again.

So assuming that our state government will follow its style of incapacitation, I needed these scholarships pretty badly, if for no other reason than to save the money from fall for spring.

I’m going to bet that not too many of the Communications faculty read my blog on a regular basis, but if you’re out there, thanks for thinking of me.
