- Brag about her accomplishments
- Think she is smart
- Draw attention to herself.
So when Phi Kappa Phi contacted her and wanted to initiate her in the honor society for her academic accomplishments, she hesitated… but as a proud ( pushy) mother, I encouraged her to accept their invitation and attend their banquet.
Well both of us attended the banquet and it was lovely, wonderful dinner companions, smart students and lovely food. The former Ambassador of Poland and former mayor of Knoxville was the honored speaker.
Which brings me the Wizard. Like the Scare Crow…. my daughter does not think she is smart. However, the Scare Crow upon receiving his honorary degree, he could state the Pythagorean theory and is deemed intelligent.
On Thursday night, the Wizard, okay maybe her Physics professor, decreed to my daughter the medallion, a certificate and a charm of the Phi Kappa Phi Honor society.
She should now be able to look at the medal and know that she is intelligent but also…. she should be able to state the Pythagorean theory.. Although I am pretty sure should could state that before the honors.
She now has the light of learning.... according to the honor society... I think she should carry that around the campus!!
