Heartfelt congratulations to all of our Eliters and Eliters families who are graduating. Some of the messages we've received:
I would like to express to my Eliter family how proud I am of my son Greg..some of you know him as Greg, some as TxGreg or ItsmeGreg..
The Lord gave Greg to me almost 27 years ago. It was one of the most difficult things when the doctor told me it was a boy cause I had 2 sons already and of course wanted a daughter..however over the course of years Greg and I became very very close. As alot of parents experience we had our ups and downs but always remained best friends.
I watched him grow and graduate high school. He wanted so badly to attend college then but due to finances I could not afford to send him. Five years after he graduated high school he was inspired by a co-worker to go ahead and go to college. He applied and was accepted at Johnson & Wales University in Denver, CO. Leaving him in Denver to attend college in 2006 was one of the hardest things I as his mom had to do as he had never been that far away from me in the life.
Now here it is 2009 and on May 23 Greg will get his Associate degree and has been nominated as student of the year. He has also been awarded the Dean's list all but 2 trimester of his 3 years in college. Next May Greg will graduate with he Bachelor's degree in business management.
