Newest Dolphin Scholars Announced

The Dolphin Scholarship Foundation has announced the 30 newly-selected Dolphin Scholars for 2009, including one that is causing great joy here in the Bubblehead household -- our middle child, Robert. (He missed out on being the 1000th Dolphin Scholar by the vagaries of the alphabet.) If you'd like to see what a Washington State University-bound Dolphin Scholar (and National Merit Scholar) looks like in his natural environment, check out this video:

Actually, his room doesn't normally look like that; the memos strewn around his walls and ceilings are part of the answer his Prom date gave to him. (He had asked her to Prom by giving her a "Jump To Conclusions" mat on which all the answers were some form of "Yes".) I'm still not sure if these complicated date invitation rituals are limited to the LDS community, or if it's spread throughout the rest of society. All I know is I never had to go through any of this back in the early 80s.

Congratulations to you and yours, Joel! I guess this Husky (Don James era) will forgive and forget that WAZZU is in the cards!

A Dolphin Scholar will know about about the truth of this name issue, surely?
