Friday night we had a smashing meal at Bern's to celebrate the impending matriculation. At dinner we learned that Amy had won the prestigious John H. Sykes Award. Amy was given the award for her involvement at Eckerd College with Hillel and with the Holocaust Museum. One of the reasons I've always been impressed with Amy is that she has shown a devotion to service since high school, when I first met her through her mom (a fellow librarian and dear friend). At the time, she was Key Club president and had rewritten their website and organized an amazing fundraiser coordinating the activities of tons of kids all while being a very busy senior trying to get into college.
